The Strategy Model defines the driving forces behind not
only the Enterprise as it currently is but also the driving forces behind where
it is moving to in the future and why.
It is important because it creates the overall context for
any analysis and definition of what needs to change in the Enterprise, over
what time period and why. The more people that understand the business
environment and the Vision, Goals, and Objectives, the more likely it is that
they will be achieved.
In addition, once the Enterprise Strategy Model is
populated, the information in the other models can be related to it. This
allows a clear line-of-sight back to the vision, goal or objectives of the Enterprise.
Its scope is largely defined by the associated Meta-model.
The most common source of this information is in published
documents and the Enterprise’s Intranet.
Much like the Target Model, once defined the Enterprise Strategy
Model is not set in stone.
It is reviewed on an annual basis during the annual business
planning cycle and also whenever a major event causes the Enterprise to rethink
its Target Model. E.g. A Merger or acquisition.
