It may be hard to believe, but it’s true, many companies are still struggling to connect the work, activities and investments of a function to business results. Many functional departments are still challenged to identify and select measures and metrics to help facilitate strategic decisions and improve performance. It is essential that the leaders in every function can prove their value, contribution, and impact to the organization.

Alignment is the critical success factor for improving effectiveness for any function. Alignment is essential for moving from managing metrics to managing performance, and for using measurement and metrics to facilitate change. Alignment may seem like common sense and a relatively easy fix, however, in our work with hundreds of companies, we have found that this is easier said than done. Most functions don’t have a process for ensuring alignment.
