Competitive advantage and high performance can be achieved with the right strategy and business model. However, the right management model (i.e. how things get done) is equally important for an organisation’s enduring success. And this is what Beyond Budgeting is all about: Helping organisations develop their management model, thus increasing effectiveness and enabling them to reach their full performance potential.
A key feature of an effective management model is the alignment between leadership principles and management processes.
This being the case, we were very happy to read a great article that has just been published in Harvard Business Review: “How Aligned Is Your Organization?” In this article, Jonathan Trevor and Barry Varcoe from Oxford University’s Saïd Business School explain why such alignment is needed for any organisation to be efficient and deliver sustainable results in line with its purpose.
