Organisational alignment is an important concept for leaders to consider. This is especially true in the current fast-paced, complex, and constantly changing environment.
Many organisations are struggling with changes in their external environment as a result of disruptive change. As these external changes are occurring they can lead to non-alignments within the organisations.
Strategy and culture
Corporate culture is particularly enabled as a strategic asset when there is consistency across the organisation in values, policies, practices, and strategies. The two prevalent forces shaping corporate activity and results: strategy and culture.
The strategy path defines what needs to be done; the culture path emphasizes how things are normally done. The best companies maintain an alignment between the two paths.
The secret ingredient
Organisational alignment is the secret ingredient that is often missing for many businesses. But a high level of organisational alignment is essential for achieving increasingly better business performance results now and in the future – that’s why organisational alignment is so important.
What does it take to build a strong culture? That’s a tough question. Many leaders and managers doubt whether it is possible to change corporate culture in the first place. But it is!
