Jonathan Trevor

Strategic alignment LinkedIn Live webinar

About the event

Participate in a live lecture by Jonathan Trevor, Associate Professor of Management Practice via LinkedIn Live on Friday 15 November.

Why do some businesses thrive whilst many more struggle and fail?  

A key reason – and the focus of Professor Trevor’s new book Align - A leadership blueprint for aligning enterprise purpose, strategy and organisation – is strategic alignment. 

To mark the book’s launch, we cordially invite you to a special LinkedIn Live lecture where Jonathan will introduce and discuss the book’s central themes. Jonathan will also be in conversation with Sara Beck, Chief Operating Officer at Saïd Business School and taking questions from the online audience. 

Please mark the date in your diary and we will follow up shortly with joining instructions. All are welcome. 

Visit the school’s LinkedIn page to view the live event.

Strategic alignment is the careful arrangement of the various elements of an enterprise – from its business strategy to how it is organised – to best support the fulfilment of its long-term purpose.  

The best-aligned enterprises are the best performing. Drawing upon active research at the University of Oxford's Said Business School, Jonathan Trevor, Associate Professor of Management Practice, will outline a blueprint for how strategic alignment can be effectively developed, implemented and sustained to help leaders everywhere to improve enterprise performance.
