Here we have highlighted one phase of the transformation
cascade to look at, but please keep in mind that although we are using one
phase as an example, everything you will now see can be equally applied to any
Over this graphic we have added the important disciplines to
the Phase ellipse, and boxes indicating the models in use to the levels.
Solid lines indicate models that are created in this phase. In
other words, outputs. For example, the Orange Current and Target state
Dotted lines indicate models that are created in another phase
(either below or above). In other words, inputs. For example, the Pink Target
Structural State from the phase above, and the Yellow Current Structural State
from the phase below.
Models indicated with blue lines are Structural models (defined
by MACE). Models indicated with red lines, are Transformational models (defined
There are five fundamental disciplines defined:
Requirements Management - Where
requirements are understood and refined to the level required to drive the
Discovery - Where information
about the current structural state is obtained.
Analysis & Design - Where
the information about the Target state and the means to achieve it is created.
Governance & Lobbying -
Where the information is reviewed and any Transformation Debt™ is exposed and
Modelling & Decision Making -
Overall pseudo-disciplines which are used by all other disciplines.
