Most strategies fail.
The reason for this is the lack of strategic alignment.
For a strategy to be powerful, actionable and effective, there needs to be an alignment around what the strategy means, and why it’s important.
Here is what is required to achieve alignment:
- Creating a clear connection between strategic objectives and departmental objectives.
- Driving ideas from the bottom up rather then the top down.
- Engaging the entire organization around execution of the strategy.
You might be wondering, why is strategic alignment so important?
Well, no alignment means the strategy is simply a paper weight.
Instead we need to get employees, suppliers and stakeholders excited and engaged in delivering on our strategy.
