Reference materials to review before the discussion:
Designing Organizations to Support Human Alignment
Summary of research behind Alignment

Research shows two things:

  1. that people hear and see the same words yet interpret their meanings differently: hence, misalignment within groups is inevitable
  2. that better alignment among team members, whether cognitively (how they understand the intent of the strategy) or behaviorally (how they interact to align), improves effectiveness

Lindsay Uittenbogard, explores the question, “What can the OD practitioner do to minimize misalignment / support better alignment among individuals and groups within the organization once the design is implemented?” 

  • learn about the research behind team alignment
  • learn about the 4 most common types of misalignment
  • discuss the causes and symptoms of misalignment
  • review data coming out of teams with an alignment diagnostic
  • explore ways to design alignment into organizations
