Strategic Fit of Projects

Good question. If you read the summary of "Strategic Fit" on 12manage, you can see the term is used in various disciplines to analyze the match between a broad range of objects:

- In M&A, to indicate to what extent 2 parties of a merger are fitting together.
- In project management, to express the extent to which a project matches the strategy if a firm.
