The Influence of Entrepreneurial Action on Strategic Alignment in New Ventures
MetadataShow full item record
The alignment of IT strategy with business strategy has been among the top concerns of business leaders for several decades (Kappelman et al., 2014; Niederman et al., 1991). This interest from practitioners has stimulated researchers to produce a voluminous body of literature where definitions and dimensions of alignment have been proposed, measures and models have been developed, and antecedents and outcomes have been identified (Chan and Reich, 2007). Interest in alignment is driven by the reality that there are important organizational performance benefits for firms that achieve a high degree of alignment (Gerow et al., 2015). Our purpose in this paper is to examine the development of strategic alignment in the specific context of new ventures.
