Fact Sheet:  Senior Team Alignment

"Effective organizations today are built around high performing teams..."
"Today's C-suite executives must be teams leading teams." 
Deloitte Human Capital Study 2016
How Does Your Executive Team Operate?
 It's no secret:
  • Senior Executive Teams composed of talented executives play a key role in an organization's success 
  • To be successful these teams must execute objectives that are shared across functions
  • They must achieve goals that require teamwork, cooperation, and collaboration. 
Unfortunately, in our experience:    
  • Many senior teams are aligned towards management of individual functional objectives
  • They not have processes and systems necessary to work as a team to deliver overall business objectives
  • They do not have clear roles and responsibilities so there can be confusion about "who owns what" and "who owns what decision"
 A Senior Team needs to work differently to execute cross-functionally
  • It needs to increasingly be able to work cross-functionally
  • It needs to operate with different management routines and systems. 
  • It needs to have roles and responsibilities that are crystal clear
  • It needs to work effectively as a team of talented executives aligned to a common purpose
