Research-Backed Organizational Alignment Research Model of Strategy, Culture & Talent
3x Organizational Alignment™ Research Model and Framework
Our organizational alignment research model and framework was created to help companies to perform at their peak. Our clients tell us that it is more challenging each year to succeed.
Leaders tell us this means bigger goals, increased complexity, and tighter budgets.
Employees tell us this means higher expectations, an increased pace of change, and the need to do more with less.
Yet, some leaders and teams significantly outperform their peers. We wanted to know why. So we launched a research initiative to understand what distinguishes the winners from the losers. Our presupposition? That Organizational Alignment (the optimum combination of business strategy, corporate culture, and talent) makes the difference.
What we found? The data supports our 3x Organizational Alignment Research Model to an astounding degree. Based upon research of 410 companies across 8 industries, highly aligned companies grow revenue 58% faster and are 72% more profitable while significantly outperforming their unaligned peers in terms of:
The Organizational Alignment Research model and framework used 26 independent variables in the areas of business strategy, organizational culture, and talent and measured them against 15 dependent variables of organizational performance in terms of financial and non-financial performance.
While all 26 ingredients in the organizational alignment recipe significantly impacted performance and any alignment factor taken alone will not work in isolation, seven factors matter most in creating strategic clarity, a high performing culture and differentiating your talent.

LSA was very thorough during all phases of our customer service strategy process. Their time spent with management and our employees went very well.
LSA’s insights were very powerful, and their suggestions for the future were very valuable.
I can’t think of any phase of the process that wasn’t first class.

LSA worked with our Executive Leadership Team to help create strategic clarity and alignment as we look to increase our growth rate and unlock innovation. They masterfully handled very complex, challenging, and high stakes leaders, decisions, and cultural nuances to help us identify what matters most and move toward one unified direction.
Their practical, straightforward, and client-centric approach was refreshing. I highly recommend them to any executive team looking to get aligned to create even higher performance. They are lights out awesome!

We got great value from the executive strategy session. We would not hesitate to use LSA again with our Executive Leadership Team.
Chief Marketing & Strategy Officer
Having taken on a new executive leadership role, one of my first calls was to LSA Global to help my leadership team to design, implement, and cascade clear strategic plans. First, LSA helped our leadership team identify the strategy, culture, and talent areas that mattered most to create organizational alignment.
Then they helped facilitate the design of a strategic growth plan that is clear, compelling, believable, and implementable. We now have 100% commitment from an aligned leadership team and key stakeholders going forward.
I would recommend LSA to anyone who wants to create high levels of strategic alignment, growth, and performance.
Vice President, General Manager
Great job in designing the Mergers and Acquisition strategy session for our global leadership team. The session was excellent.
I gained additional insight on the importance of the role of HR regarding strategy, culture, and people in Mergers and Acquisitions and would recommend LSA to anyone looking to align strategies and cultures.
Senior Vice President, Human Resources
We selected LSA Global over 5 other companies to help our key executives improve their overall communication and executive presentation capabilities. LSA exceeded our expectations.
I highly recommend LSA to any executive team looking to better organize and more effectively deliver key executive-level messages — especially when the stakes are high.
Office of the CEO
LSA’s executive coach based his approach on understanding our business circumstances and strategy, as well as our leadership aspirations. The customized coaching covered all aspects of leadership; it was not simply a touchy-feely endeavor.
In fact, the focus on clear business outcomes and real life circumstances challenged me as a senior leader to develop my thinking and actions related to leading the business.”
I can’t emphasize enough what a huge shift you helped to create for us as an organization. Thanks again for your change management consulting help and guidance.
The clarity, practicality, focus, and accountability are exactly what we needed to make this strategy and major transformation a success from a hearts and minds perspective.

The LSA customized Organizational Alignment Survey gave us a comprehensive view of how our employees experience our culture, talent, and strategy.
The systemic approach provided us with a great forum to discuss the strengths and opportunities in our organization, and then to quickly get focused on the key actions critical to executing our business and people strategies.
