“Successful companies are able to create plans that are aligned to the strategy, and then turn those plans into actions that meet customer needs and can be delivered profitably. However, for many organizations, functional silos, misaligned metrics and organizational complexity all make it difficult to align execution, planning and strategy. By focusing on people, process and technology, organizations can successfully overcome these barriers to advance planning maturity.”
