Enterprise Alignment refers to the ongoing process every company goes through to keep the elements of the organization aligned with the organization's strategy and goals. Vertical alignment is used to assure that process and activity measures and the measures used to evaluate managerial performance are all aligned with corporate goals. Horizontal alignment, or process improvement, focuses in assuring that all of the activities that take place in a process are aligned with the goals of the process.
