For your course project, document a Strategic Alignment Model for your organization as outlined in the article. In addition to the Snapshot you will create with this model, you will analyze where your firm is with respect to alignment and where it should be, and you will make recommendations on how your firm can close the gap in order to improve the value of the IT resource.
Please sum up the paper “IT Strategic Alignment Model” that you have worked on twice for me. I have attached the work you did. Please write at least 4 pages, preferable a page on each. You can use EPIC online resources for the HR hiring/firing SKILLS section or any other section you would like. There is plenty of information about EPIC online.
