Top 5 Secrets to Build Strategy Alignment
When organizational structures, processes and systems support the larger strategy of your organization, you have achieved strategic alignment. You also need to ensure all employees understand what the organization is trying to accomplish, make decisions based on that strategy, and align department and individual goals with the higher-level goals. This alignment is created when high-level strategy is cascaded first to business and support units, then to individual employees. This approach helps create an organization that is high-performing, agile and growth-oriented.
For most organizations, striving for strategic alignment is a no-brainer. But actually implementing it across an organization is challenging. And most organizations are not doing it effectively.
Does your organization exhibit these strategy management challenges?
- An organization-wide strategy exists BUT – That strategy has not been effectively cascaded to the lines of business, departments, and individuals
- Employees don’t understand where they fit into the organization strategy – They overhear executives talk about the organization strategy, but there is no direct communication about how individuals should align with it
- Too many disparate project initiatives – There is ambiguity about if and where these initiatives fit on a strategic level for the organization strategy and department operations
- Strategy communications are ineffective or nonexistent – Following the development of the initial organization-wide strategy, rumors abound that it might be expanding or fading away entirely. The question becomes: “Is the strategy real? If so, how am I as an individual contributor or my team supposed to execute on it?”
