Keynote Speaker: Getting to strategic alignment
by Prof. Christopher A. Walker, DBA of the Neeley School of Business, Texas Christian University
Description: The term strategy has military roots. It involves assessing the (competitive) situation and developing an appropriate (strategic) response. In business terms, strategy is a goal-oriented set of plans and actions that enables a business to compete effectively. Security’s role in this process is to ensure that their strategies, objectives, and goals are aligned with those of the organization. Security must understand the organization’s strategy in order to be successful.
