Business Cluster: Corporate Coherence

Corporate coherence should be a priority among top management teams to ensure the success of their organizations in today’s ever-changing environment. This concept refers to an integrated logic and basis for action that helps business units to support and complement each other in an integrated manner.

Several factors are driving the need for corporate coherence, including the increasing focus on core competencies, global interdependence, environmental shifts, multipoint competition, and organizational changes. To achieve this, the top management team should share information, resources and decisions.
