Leading and Aligning the Organization

Leading and Aligning the Organization: Organizational alignment is the appropriate placement of the acquisition function in the organization, with stakeholders having clearly defined roles and responsibilities that are consistent with meeting the organization’s mission. Leadership is the ability to obtain and maintain organizational support for executing the acquisition function and determines the relationship between the various functional departments and employees. The desired outcome is to ensure your acquisition function operates strategically, with well-defined roles and responsibilities, to benefit the organization as a whole instead of only the individual requirement generating offices.
