Alignment refers to uniting teams and departments across the organization towards common objectives. By aligning different departments towards common company goals, you can improve the focus on long-term goals. The best way to improve alignment in your organization is by bringing transparency to goals through the OKR framework. You can align goals across different teams and departments at the bottom-up, i.e., team members to department/ management. When all employees across the organization understand how their work contributes to the progress of company goals, alignment sets in.
