From the authors of the bestselling book The Power of Alignment

When Vern Clark became the Chief of Naval Operations in 2001, he made alignment one of his top five goals for the Navy. He also made George Labovitz and Victor Rosansky's pioneering book, The Power of Alignment (1997), required reading for every admiral. Under Clark's leadership, the U.S. Navy underwent one of the greatest -- and most successful -- organizational transformations in its 200-year history.

Now, Labovitz and Rosansky introduce the highly anticipated follow-up to their groundbreaking book: Rapid Realignment.

The business world has changed dramatically since 1997. With the pace of technological, competitive, and social change increasing at an amazing rate, the difference between winning and losing today lies in a company's ability to adapt and stay focused. Rapid Realignment gives you the insights and tools you need to ensure that strategy, customers, processes, and people work seamlessly together in the service of customers and that they continually realign in the face of change. The authors provide everything you need to know about:

  • Engaging employees at every level with the "Main Thing" of your business
  • Linking strategy and organizational processes
  • Bringing the customer voice inside your company through social media
  • Using social media and digital technology to quickly identify points of misalignment at any level
  • Creating the "Enterprise Effect"

Case studies from a broad array of companies, including FedEx, Quest Diagnostics, the U.S. Navy, Dana Farber/Children's Hospital Cancer Center, Farmington Bank, and others clearly illustrate the authors' methods, demonstrating that they work in any industry.

Rapid Realignment provides a practical blueprint for "wowing" customers and reaching peak organizational performance -- no matter what today's turbulent world throws your way.
