How do we align the organization with the strategy?
That is a question that people often raise, particularly when a new strategy has been introduced. In such cases, it may be necessary to adjust the organization to ensure that the new strategy is implemented.
But how, specifically, do we do it? To clarify this issue, I interviewed executives in five large and complex firms (including 3 CEOs). They each described specific changes that had implemented as a result of new strategic priorities or initiatives.
I summarize some of the key findings in the video (it lasts for 12 minutes).
P.S. As I mention at the end, in my book I describe an analytical methodology to align the organization with the mission and strategy. You can also download a recent academic paper that I wrote about this topic from researchgate.net
