Alignment is when a company or team is moving in the same direction, at the same speed, striving for the same goals, and clear on the same priorities.
If there is any area that has the most impact on organizational success and productivity, it is alignment. The power of any group to excel resides in unity of a common passion. History records well the exceptional accomplishments of people and companies who are united with common desire, purpose, and priorities.
An alignment initiative is a defined and disciplined process. Common vision is created, direction is defined, and measurable goals are developed. A well-designed process takes intangibles and connects to tangible results.
