5 Steps to check your strategic alignment

By Professor Jonathan Trevor, from Said Business School

1- Enterprise Strategy

What is our purpose? How is it valued by others outside the organisation?

2- Business Strategy

What are we trying achieve to fulfil this purpose? What do we offer to our customers? How are we different and better than our competitors?

3- Organisational Capability

What do we need to be good at to win? What do we need to develop and what gaps do we need to close? Execution ability? Agility? Innovation?

4- Resource Architecture

5- Management Systems

How do we create systems to maximise performance day-to-day – so that we can deliver on our purpose?
