What's inside?

Most executives today know their enterprises should be managed in this 'aligned' way. The challenge is that executives tend to focus on only one aspect of what makes their enterprise effective (either their strategy, capabilities, resources or management systems), to the neglect of the others. What really matters for performance is how they all fit together. The reality is that there are thousands of organisations globally who are operating well below their potential and getting by because they are not aligned. This book aims to change that.

Align draws upon an active research programme at the University of Oxford Saïd Business School and provides real examples, detailed scenarios and evidence-based insights to deliver a thoughtful and compelling message to help leaders to deliver positive change in any organisation.

"In a world swamped with companies’ declarations of purpose...the book makes clear that when it comes to alignment, purpose is fundamentally what the business does and why it matters for its stakeholders.”
