Strategic Alignment
The Business Imperative For Leading Organizations
by Dr. Etido Oliver Akpan

The Essence Of Strategic Alignment

This book is based on a study that was conducted by the author while concluding his doctoral dissertation. The deficiency of strategic alignment is a very major problem plaguing various companies today, and this has robbed many businesses of economies of scale. The absence of strategic alignment is the reason many businesses do not obtain value from IT investments.

A typical business manager and executive has problems comprehending and acquiring a systematic and holistic concept of information systems (IS), and this apparent disconnect between business and information technology (IT) results in strategic misalignment between business and IT.

The insufficient utilization of information technology is a major problem confronting both business and IT leaders. Strategic alignment continues to be a major issue currently facing many organizations.

Because of information technology's strategic necessity to business today, most IT executives have come to the realization that IT personnel are terribly deficient in business prowess and education.

The significance of this problem cannot be overemphasized. It is not only the alignment of IT goals with business goals that poses a problem to business leaders, but the alignment of business with IT also presents challenging tasks to organizational policy makers.

About the author:
