PF2 consists of a coherent and holistic set of Ontologies and Frameworks, that are designed to help improve the maturity of how Enterprises carry out their business in the four strategically important areas as defined by DOTS – Direction, Operation, Transformation and Support.

Each Framework is designed to be:

Pragmatic

Provide 80% of the benefits for only 20% of the effort.

Well-defined

Deal with a well-defined domain.

Complete

Be complete in scope with no overlaps and no gaps (not the same as complete in terms of detail. Detail is provided by Frameworks to the right).

Interlocking

Connect to and interface with frameworks at the same level.

Inheritable

Each framework inherits and builds on the content and guidance from Frameworks to the left and provides content and guidance to frameworks to the right.

Extensible

Helps Enterprises create their own frameworks (marked with a red X) by inheriting as much or as little as they deem appropriate from whatever level they deem appropriate.

 

¨      POED - The Pragmatic Ontology for Enterprise Direction sets the context for the Direction part of the Enterprise. It defines Methods, Artefacts, Cultural and Environmental things, that apply to all parts of Direction, that serve to set the context to increase the maturity of its individual parts.

¨      POEO - The Pragmatic Ontology for Enterprise Operation sets the context for the Operations part of the Enterprise. It defines Methods, Artefacts, Cultural and Environmental things, that apply to all parts of Operations, that serve to set the context to increase the maturity of its individual parts.

¨      POET - The Pragmatic Ontology for Enterprise Transformation sets the context for the Transformation part of the Enterprise. It defines Methods, Artefacts, Cultural and Environmental things, that apply to all parts of Transformation, that serve to set the context to increase the maturity of its individual parts (Strategising, Roadmapping, Initiation, Elaboration, Construction and Transitioning and Governance).

¨      POES - The Pragmatic Ontology for Enterprise Support sets the context for the Support part of the Enterprise. It defines Methods, Artefacts, Cultural and Environmental things, that apply to all parts of Support, that serve to set the context to increase the maturity of its individual parts.

In the Transformation domain, POET provides the context for two further frameworks.

¨      PEAF - The Pragmatic Enterprise Architecture Framework sets the context for the Strategising and Roadmapping parts of Transformation (Enterprise Architecture). It defines Methods, Artefacts, Cultural and Environmental things, that serve to set the context to increase their maturity. PEAF is based on and inherits from POET and therefore POET is a pre-requisite for understanding and adopting PEAF.

¨      PEEF - The Pragmatic Enterprise Engineering Framework sets the context for the Initiation, Elaboration, Construction and Transitioning parts of Transformation (Enterprise Engineering). It defines Methods, Artefacts, Cultural and Environmental things, that serve to set the context to increase their maturity. PEEF is based on and inherits from POET and therefore POET is a pre-requisite for understanding and adopting PEEF.

It is important to re-iterate that the relationships between the higher level frameworks and lower levels ones, are not one of decomposition, but are one of inheritance. Therefore, to adopt any lower level framework, the ontology that it inherits from must be understood first. For example, in order to understand and adopt PEAF or PEEF, it is a pre-requisite for POET be understood first.

Questions to ponder...

Do you know of other frameworks that could replace POED, POEO, POET and POES?

How would you place frameworks you know on this diagram?

Do you know of any frameworks that do not fit anywhere on this diagram?
