You need to make sure for your organization.

Standing up a data solution without explicit alignment to strategy creates an effort that is at the mercy of resistance or changes in priorities.

"I want to...

...make better decisions."

...do analytics."

...get on the AI bandwagon."

These are NOT good reasons for data projects!

"I want to . ."

These are NOT good reasons
for data projects.

All of these are well-intended. But none speak to Alignment means get to the WHY.
The alignment service gets you to solid alignment of data programs to business needs.
