Marion Lepmets, Rory V. O'Connor, Aileen Cater-Steel, Antoni Lluis Mesquida, Tom McBride
2014 2014 9th International Conference on the Quality of Information and Communications Technology  
Process models should therefore be accompanied by tailoring guidelines and approaches to assist with strategic and operational goal alignment that support their use in industry.  ...  Knowing their domain helps the organization realize the amount of tailoring and goal alignment necessary to benefit from implementing process model guidance.  ...  The reason for this is that the process models themselves offer a generic solution and therefore require an approach to allow alignment between process goals and the organization's goals and situation.  ...

Total Respect Management (TR³M): A Systemic Management Approach in Aligning Organisations towards Performance, Safety and CSR

Peter Blokland, Genserik Reniers
2015 Environmental Management and Sustainable Development  
Such a situation can only happen when the mental models present in the organisation, from top to bottom, are aligned with these values and beliefs.  ...  Being a systemic approach entails it takes the whole system into account and acts on those elements in the system that generate fundamental and sustainable change in order to achieve specific goals.  ...  This model is based upon the model of logical levels of awareness of Robert Dilts and Gregory Bateson, adapted to aligned leadership in organisations.  ...
