This week’s topic is on strategic alignment of the organization. Strategic alignment refers to the degree in which the Vision, Leadership, Strategy and Operations of the business are working inter-dependently to a common outcome.
What I have observed over the years is as companies grow and mature, there are critical times in their development in which one or more of these key elements get out of sorts with the other – whether it’s by becoming silo’d, or fighting head to head with the key drivers, the result is un-needed drag on the organization. It’s like driving down the freeway with the parking brake on.
