The first part of Roadmapping
is to form the Enterprise Transformation Project Board and then to determine a
framework that will be used to increase your Enterprise Transformation
In order to do that, you will need to discover and then be
briefed on any number of frameworks - unless you have already decided to use
Once a selection is made from that shortlist, you will then
need to become more aware of the framework selected, what it contains and how
it can help, which will enable you and other Senior Stakeholders to take a
coherent and holistic view of the Methods, Artefacts, Culture and Environment
used by the Transformation part of an Enterprise. This is the purpose of POET. This
will allow you to make informed decisions regarding what parts may need an
increase in maturity and how that increase might be effected.
You will then be in a good position to perform a high level
evaluation of your maturity and produce a detailed plan for the next phase.
In addition, at this point, it
may also be decided that other sub-parts of the Transformation domain may
require an increase in maturity (either based on a phase such as Roadmapping,
based on a Discipline such as Project Management, or based on a Role such as
Business Analysis - e.g. PEAF, PEEF, PRINCE2, COBIT, ITIL, MoP, MoV, Lean, TOGAF,
etc, etc). If that is the case then those initiatives would begin their own
journey using EMMA with Strategising and “Why Should I Care?”
Executive Management will then decide to proceed to the next
phase, to pause, or even stop the initiative at this point.
If we obtain the mandate and resources to proceed, the next
phase is Initiating.
