Here’s Why Your Executive Team Isn’t Strategically Aligned (And How to Fix It)
Lack of strategic alignment is one of the main causes of business...
Countless articles have been written about Strategic Management, but the vast majority focus solely on grand-scale corporate strategy. While the strategic management process at the corporate level typically involves a major strategic planning event each year for organizational leaders, our focus is different: at CMOE, we focus on “individual” strategic management. We contend that every member of an organization should have a strategic vision for his or her work, and they should understand how that individual contribution strengthens the organization as a whole.
A person’s strategic vision has two components. The first component should address how a person can support the future strategic direction of the organization (the grand, overarching strategy). In order to maintain an organization’s momentum and strength, everyone needs to be aligned and pulling in the same direction. The second component hinges on the idea that everyone should have a personal strategic agenda for his or her own work. In other words, individuals must see themselves as business units, each with a population of one. This individual strategy is unique for each contributor and explores how he or she can add value and offer distinctive service to the organization now and in the future.
