Research-Backed Organizational Alignment Research Model of Strategy, Culture & Talent
3x Organizational Alignment™ Research Model
Our organizational alignment research model 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 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.

Is the way work gets done at your company helping or hindering your performance?
Do you have the right talent for your unique strategy and culture?
