Alignment is when everyone is on the same page and rowing the boat in the same direction. Contributions of your people, resources, planning, and processes are all in sync and focused on what truly matters. Organizational alignment works through setting objectives that are aligned up and down the organization and this will increase everyone’s performance and your company’s results. Alignment enables your company to achieve a far higher level of performance because the contributions of your people, resources, planning, and processes are focused on driving measurable objectives. As a result, you’ll minimize wasted time not focusing on the right things, misdirection of effort, and misallocation of resources because everyone is working in sync towards what truly matters to drive the business forward. Alignment will increase everyone’s performance and your company’s results. Unfortunately, misalignment is typically one of the top reasons why companies fail.
Organizational alignment ensures that employees are making progress towards what truly matters to the company:
