Strategic Fit of Projects
Jaap de Jonge, Management Consultant, Netherlands
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 strategy, to describe if and to what extent a strategy of a firm matches the external environment of the firm.
- 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.
It really depends on the field the term is used in and the 2 objects of the fit. There is no "100% universal accepted truth" in defining this term.
