In order to maximize the contributions to strategic objectives, the methods used for project alignment takes a highly coordinated effort in recent decades. According to the research by Villachica, Stone & Endicott (2004), it was conducted that the project alignment is to ensure the project begins with a shared vision of success. This essay provides information about three methods generally used to align projects to strategy. Moreover, comparisons of the three methods used to align projects to strategy would be made with literature reviews.
