Strategic alignment is a mechanism by which an organization can visualize the relationship between its
business processes and strategies. It enables organizational decision makers to collect meaningful insights based on their current processes. Currently it is difficult to show the sustainability of an organization and to determine an optimal set of processes that are required for realizing strategies. Further, there is not a general framework for strategic alignment that can ease this problem. In this article, we propose such a general framework for strategic alignment, which helps develop a clear understanding of the relationships between strategies and business processes. The framework gives organizations an understanding of the relationship between a set of processes and the realization of a set of strategies; it also shows the optimal set of processes that can achieve these strategies.
