What is misalignment?

Nick Malik: In order to solve a problem, you have to know the problem you are solving. In a growing number of organizations, Enterprise Architecture is responsible for insuring the alignment of business change programs (including but not limited to programs that impact computing systems). But what does a misaligned program look like? How would you know one when you saw it, and what would you do when you do recognize one? Until you can answer these questions, your EA program may be a dog chasing a car. What will you do when you catch it?
