Getting your business’ 4 key building blocks in place and in line

This framework might be helpful in testing whether your business is lined up to flow easily, or whether there are some important areas of non-alignment to address.

  • Strategy
  • Leadership
  • Culture
  • Talent

Culture informs the Talent a business requires.
