Operational Alignment

Optimizing organizational alignment and operations

A fragile global economic environment, increasing competition for talent, and a limited availability of experienced talent make it difficult for organizations to sustain competitive advantages. Now, more than ever before, optimizing organizational alignment and operations is critical to success.

Operational Alignment benefits are clear-cut to organizational leaders. A marksman’s accuracy is enhanced if his sights are properly aligned. In NASCAR, drivers pay particular attention to camber. Camber refers to the vertical tilt of a wheel if you are viewing it from the front or rear of the car. In an organizational context, camber is similar to vision. Poor alignment to your vision can make the difference between winning and losing.

The difficulty in transforming your organization correlates directly with your ability to gain and sustain adoption. Standardizing your organizational processes provides enterprises with flexibility and agility. Harmonizing practices and methods will allow you to leverage the benefits of cross functional teams, process clarity, and technology optimization, leading to sustainable adoption.
