|The Importance Of Organisational Alignment

As the renowned business guru and author of one of business leaders must read books “Good to Great”, Jim Collins quotes “Great performance is 1% vision and 99% alignment.”

Organisational alignment is one of the most critical factors for the success of any business. Yet, it is one of the most ignored.

In this webinar Bill will talk about:

  • What is organisational alignment and why it’s critical to a company’s success
  • How to recognise some signs of misalignment within your organisation and how it may negatively impact your business performance
  • Ways to improve alignment in your organisation


Bio: Bill’s personable nature and authenticity means that he can quickly connect and get alongside people to take them on their improvement journey. A diverse range of experiences and skills enable him to take a more holistic view across the key aspects of a business operation. He challenges people’s thinking, pushing and encouraging them to go further than they thought possible. He believes in a customer-centric approach to business where success comes through combining quality products or services with outstanding delivery through engaged, energised and committed people.

Time: 16 July, Thursday, 1:00 pm
