A lot of consulting firms talk about strategic alignment. Linked to the use of balanced scorecards and strategy-focused organisations by Kaplan and Norton, it is often seen as a pseudo-academic term designed to drive consulting revenues. Our objective in this paper is to strip away the hyperbole and look at why aligning your objectives, technology spending and people development is not some disconnected consulting notion, but the very heart of effective management- and as such, something that all of us do every day.
Topics Included in This Paper...
