Alignment means that every organization and every person is trying to move the company in the same direction and toward a common vision.
Alignment is established through the creation of consistent goals and objectives for every organization and every person in the company.
A company’s mission statement provides a concise description of the purpose for the company being in business, and usually speaks of the value the company is trying to deliver to its customers.
In other words, the mission statement describes the reason for the existence of the company.
The company mission is defined at a high level and typically does not change from year to year.
It might get tweaked once in a while, but it is not substantially changed unless your company has a major change in business focus.
Each year, companies also create goals. Yearly goals are outcomes the company wants to achieve to help it meet its mission. Goals are also written at a high-level and may take more than one year to achieve.
Company goals can change from year to year, although they are written at a high-enough level that many can be similar from one year to the next. Company goals provide more detail and guidance to the organization on what is important to achieve in the next one to three years.
As an example, let’s say part of your company’s mission is to “… be the leading supplier of high-quality widgets to the aerospace industry…” One of your company goals might be to increase your market share of widgets in the aerospace industry, while another might be to have the highest quality widgets in the industry.
Alignment is created by first having the company create overall company goals, strategies and objectives. Each high level organization then creates more specific goals, strategies and objectives that make sense for their organization, while also allowing their organization to contribute toward the company goals, strategies and objectives.
Likewise, each lower level organization creates goals, strategies and objectives that are very specific and tactical, while still helping them contribute to the organization they are within. This process continues down to each individual person.
Each person should receive specific objectives that will help their organization, which helps the organization above them, which ultimately helps the company.
Alignment is all about having the resources in your company striving toward the same general purpose.
Alignment comes from making sure that people and organizations know what is important to the company. It also means that people have incentives to move the company in that one direction and not in directions that are counter to the general strategy.
