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:

  • Retaining customers 2.23-to-1
  • Satisfying customers 3.2-to-1
  • Effectively leading 8.71-to-1
  • Engaging employees 16.8-to-1

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.

The optimum combination of business strategy, corporate culture, and talent to maximize performance using 26 independent variables measured against 15 dependent variables of organizational performance.

  • Strategic Clarity Accounts for 31% of the Difference
    In highly aligned companies, employees clearly understand the business strategy, have no doubt it will lead to success, and believe that it can be implemented in their unique competitive landscape and workplace culture.

    Unfortunately, leaders believe that their plans for success are twice as clear as their employees.  Is your strategy truly clear enough to succeed?

  • Healthy and High Performing Culture Accounts for 40% of the Difference
    In highly aligned companies, employees trust leadership, clearly understand the desired corporate culture, frequently observe the majority of leaders modeling the desired culture, and regularly feel the culture helps to accelerate, not hinder, the business strategy.

    Is the way work gets done at your company helping or hindering your performance?

  • Differentiated Talent Accounts for 29% of the Difference
    In highly aligned companies, employees universally believe the quality of talent at the company creates a competitive edge, repeatedly observe the company hiring and retaining top performers, and continually have unfettered access to the resources necessary to succeed.

    Do you have the right talent for your unique strategy and culture?
