In order for people to understand POETs fundamental structural and transformational ontology, here we map the names of common documents/models/artefacts etc, that many people are familiar with (although perhaps, not everyone defies them in the same way!)

Business Model

The Business Model corresponds to the contextual level of MAGMA. However, since this information is part of the Direction Domain, the specific ontologies used are defined in POED. Any metamodels actually used are very business dependant (and dependent upon the C-Suite’s experience) but typically utilise things like the Business Motivation Model (BMM), the Business Model Canvas (BMC), the Enterprise Canvas (EC - Tom Graves), V4 BM, etc are used.

There is a Current and Target Business Model indicating last year’s Business Model and the one you begin to create for this year. Of course, the Business Model should rarely change, but the Enterprise may decide internally that they want to change it or it may need to change based on a new Enterprise Context (or the understanding of something that was already part of the Enterprise Context but not taken into account).

Roadmap Model

The Roadmap Model corresponds to the Conceptual level of MAGMA. It fundamentally defines the actions that must be taken to structurally change the Enterprise from the current Structural state, through Intermediate Structural states, towards the Target Structural state.

The remaining levels of Transformational information (as defined by MAGMA) tend to be considered more in terms of the type of information existing at different levels of abstraction rather than centred around the levels themselves. People generally talk of Requirements, Plans, Principles etc, Metrics and (hopefully for not generally) the rationale for decisions, which map directly to the Motivation, Actions, Guidance, Metrics and Assessment domains of MAGMA.

Enterprise Context

There is no commonly existing name for things that constitute the Enterprise Context but structural information about things outside the Enterprise definitely exist and must be considered.

Operating Model

The Operating Model corresponds to the Contextual level of MACE. It defines the highest level view of the structure of the Enterprise required to enable the Business Model. There is a Current and Target Operating Model indicating last year’s Operating Model and the one you begin to create for this year. Of course, the Operating Model should rarely change, but the Enterprise may decide internally that they want to change it or it may need to change based on a new Business Model.

Capability Model

The Capability Model corresponds to the Conceptual level of MACE. It defines the fundamental capabilities required to support and enable/operationalise the Operating Model. Like the other models, there is are current, target and intermediate state models. These different Structural states (and the relationships between them) constitute the Structural Roadmap.

Solution Architecture

Solution Architecture corresponds to the Logical level of MACE. It defines (for each solution/project) the logical designs.

Detailed Design

Detailed Design corresponds to the Physical level of MACE. It defines (for each solution/project) the physical designs.

Enterprise Strategy, Transformation Strategy.

From these basic models, it can be clearly seen how the Enterprise Strategy and Transformation Strategy are composed.

¨      The Enterprise Strategy consists of the Business Model and Operating Model set in the context of the Enterprise Context Model.

¨      The Transformation Strategy consists of the Roadmap Model and Capability Model, set in the context of the Operating Model.

 

Where does your Enterprise’s Business Model, Operating Model and Roadmaps fit into your Enterprises Transformation domain?

Do you have the required basic information, in a usable format, to allow your Enterprise to produce the Business Model and Operating Model?

Do you have the required basic information, in a usable format, to allow your Enterprise to produce the Structural and Transformational Roadmaps?
