Success in business requires that companies maintain a collaborative, communicative culture, one which compels stakeholders to measure every decision and action against how well it aligns with and contributes to the business goals. Such a goal-oriented culture is achieved through an acute focus on the company’s foundational directives. These are:
Vision – Mission – Strategy
Supporting this triad are six components an organization needs to align with the foundational directives so that business objectives can be reached in a successful and profitable way. These components are:
People – Culture – Processes – Structure – Networks – Systems
Often individual departments are successful achieving internal goals, but lack the ability to align cross-functionally with other departments. Other times, cross-functional units may be aligned with each other, but collectively do not support the vision, mission and strategy of the company. In either case, growth and profitability opportunities are not maximized.

Auxilium's Three Legged Stool
Consider the three-legged stool model from Business School 101. If each leg is a different length, the stool will be unstable at best.
Would you want your customers to sit on a rocky stool? Probably not.
Only when the six components are directly supporting a company’s foundational directives will business objectives be attainable.
