Strategic Alignment

Strategic alignment is a process that ensures an organization's structure, use of resources support its strategy. Successful outcomes also require an awareness of the wider environment, regulatory issues and technological change. Strategic alignment contributes to improved performance by optimizing the operation of processes/systems, and the activities of teams and departments. Goal-setting theory supports the relevance of clear, measurable operational objectives that can be linked to superordinate goals. This helps ensure resources are used effectively. The concept is also significant in the context of a global business environment where activities need to be coordinated across regions and time zones. Strategic alignment encompasses not only technical and functional activities, but also issues relating to human resource management. The process may extend across organizations that share complementary objectives, e.g. business partners.
