A SUMMARY OF THE GOAL-DRIVEN ALIGNMENT PROCESS FOR AN AGILE ORGANIZATION USING THE OMG's Business Architecture and BMM Standards
Summary of the Goal-Driven Alignment Process
This animated presentation downloadable below is about the emerging OMG's Business Architecture standard views. It illustrates on a short case study (through a dozen slides) main steps that can help organizations to align their business capabilities (*), processes and knowledge to strategic changes in order to assure a coherent organizational governance.
When working through the changes that organizations want to apply to their business model, based on market analysis, enterprise strategy and directions some of the following questions are asked in relation to capabilities :
Which of these capabilities are core (customer facing) to deliver value to the customer ?
Are there any capabilities missing ? Are there any capabilities that, based on maturity; will keep us from realizing our business goal ? Why ? What are gaps (people, process, technology) that need to be considered at a later stage ? Should we leverage our partners to provide this capability ? Should we see if there is a partner that can ?
Some responses to these questions are provided below on a short case study related to the business case of a WebSale company. The business capabilities within such a limited context are not highest level ones.
Meanwhile, they bring a significant foundation to build a bridge from governance perspectives offered by Balanced Scorecards / Strategy Map techniques and BMM toward business process descriptions through structured capability components - easily adaptable to changing strategies.
(*) A business capability is a particular ability or capacity that a business may possess or exchange to achieve a specific purpose or outcome - Ulrich Homann - Microsoft
- A business capability defines “what” a business does at its core. This differs from “how” things are done or where they are done (William Ulrich - BPMInstitute.org / OMG's BASIG )
