To perform at top level, all systems within an organization need to be aligned. When body and mind aren’t connected, you can’t function well. In the same way that it is important to align the mind and the body, a promising business vision (the mind) will not have the expected result when executed without the alignment of all existing parts of the organization (the body). You have to choose how this vision will fit in. People will experience complexity when new references do not fit in with their existing references – hence, the need for taxonomy to connect the dots and internalize external references. The Company Reference Grid (CRG) is this taxonomy for enterprises and was originally designed by Frans van der Reep [1]. This extended alignment tool combines business, ICT, HRM, and operations from a strategic, entrepreneurial, and operational capabilities point of view.
