Praise for This Book
Professor Emerita of Educational Technology San Diego State University
Most books about alignment make my eyes glaze over. But this one didn’t, as it is peppered with rich examples and a relentless focus on results.
CEO, Human Capital Source
Throughout my 40-year business career I have recognized that alignment is the most common ailment of poor performing organizations. It is one thing to talk about it and another thing to do it. The Phillips have laid out a clear and practical map for converting wishes to reality.
CEO, Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp)
There is no more important measure than business impact, yet many business professionals I encounter struggle with how to align their projects to business objectives. Jack and Patti Phillips not only use their years of experience in measuring impact, but also their vast network of contacts to arrive at 10 easy steps anyone can follow. If you want to produce real results, this book is a must read.
