As the cornerstone of an organization’s financial performance and success, it is imperative for cross-functional teams and team members alike to share a common “Future Picture”. Being strategically aligned with broader organizational goals allows an entire team to work harmoniously toward mutual goals with a common purpose. More specifically, aligned business teams communicate well and support each member more proactively. They are committed to a corporate culture that fosters continuous improvement; a culture that requires team members to behave and make decisions in a manner that reinforces their organization’s core values and business principles.
Without these disciplines in place, valuable time and resources are often wasted on efforts that fail to productive desired results. Team members’ work can unfortunately become counter-productive, and the discretionary effort of managers and staff can be degraded significantly.
Unfortunately, many teams fail to align themselves with broader organizational goals, primarily due to the fact that most organizations consist of a broad array of cross-functional groups - each with their own views, goals and priorities. This is why many companies unknowingly lose momentum - allowing the marketplace and competitors to pass them by. The result: valuable time gets wasted, resources are misapplied and financial investments are made without yielding sufficient returns. Organizations lose their ability to remain competitive, clients become dissatisfied, and employees become less engaged.
The Strategic Alignment for Teams Program is designed to eliminate these shortfall by coaching and mentoring teams that are strategically aligned create value for organizations by achieving better results, in less time, and by using fewer resources. Your team will be introduced to comprehensive, scalable strategic planning processes, applicable to your entire organization, an individual business unit, or an account team. The process starts with the development of a clear, compelling, future picture defined by several key descriptors. You will then analyze your “internal system” and the “external system” in which you operate, to determine what centers of gravity you will apply your resources against. Next, you will develop parallel operations to achieve that compelling future picture.
