A Multidisciplinary Approach to Strategic Alignment
Ken Gordon MBA PMP, Strategy Consultant, United Kingdom, SIG Leader
A review of the techniques and methodologies that are applied in the quest for strategic alignment reveals a recognition that strategic alignment must be approached from multiple perspectives using insights and knowledge from various domains.
The Venkatraman model explicitly recognises this requirement in a simplified way.

Could or should a holistic 'multidisciplinary' approach be synthesised and standardised using the Venkatraman approach to frame the newer practical models such as COBIT or Zachman? Could this potentially enhance understanding of the organisational dynamics and their impacts within the implementation of the strategic objectives?

Multidisciplinary Approach to Business and IT Strategy, Infrastructure and Processes
Jaap de Jonge, Management Consultant, Netherlands
Strategic Alignment expresses the need for the IT discipline and various business disciplines to work together in both strategy formation and infrastructure/processes design, in order to support and strengthen each other both internally and externally.
Understanding the crucial role IT is currently playing both inside and outside (client, supply chain) the organization it seems to certainly make sense to apply this multi-disciplinary idea to the COBIT and Zachman IT architecture frameworks as well.
