Strategic Fit is the extent to which an organization is able to match its (internal) resources and capabilities to its external environment via its strategy:

The term strategic fit is also used to express the degree to which the corporate mission and strategies of an organization match its internal structure and its external environment. See the 7-S Framework which is similar to this idea.
