The ETMC is constructed from the phases defined in POET which constitute the Methods and Culture employed. Between these phases we see the levels defined in POET which constitute the Artefacts being used and produced along with the Environment used to use/produce them.

Phases

To help to focus the mind when considering the Methods and Culture used, the grey text in the background suggests different types of work that could be going on (such as Project/Change/Config Management, Requirements Management, Analysis & Design, Modelling, Discovery, Building, Testing, etc). In addition, Governance and Lobbying is suggested to be considered, Governance from that phase to the next, and Lobbying from that phase to the previous phase.

Levels

To help to focus the mind when considering the Artefacts and the Environment used, the grey text in the background suggests different types of Artefacts could exist. This information can be considered in terms of structural information (and the Methods that may utilise them such as Project/Change/Config Management, Requirements Management, Analysis & Design, Modelling, Discovery, Building, Testing, etc) and in terms of Transformational information (and the Methods that may utilise them, such as Requirements Management, Project/Change/Config Management, Principles, Polices, Standards, Targets, Metrics, Enterprise Debt)

There is also a place (shown in grey) where systemic or general comments can be made that apply to more than one phase or level.

The ETMC can be used in two specific ways. Point in Time assessment and post project reviews.

Point in Time Assessment

In addition to the detailed maturity measures Pragmatic supplies, the Enterprise Transformation Maturity Canvas™ (ETMC) is perhaps a more pragmatic way of beginning to think about and assess an Enterprises maturity with respect to its Transformation capability.

The ETMC can be used by printing and sticking these large sheets to a wall, or it can be done online, with people remotely collaborating using a web based tool.

Initially attendees are invited to place yellow post-it notes on the canvas with their names written on them to indicate in which areas they believe they work. Attendees are then invited to place different coloured post-it notes on the canvas with comments, indicating:

¨      Green - Things which people think are good.

¨      Red - Things which people think are bad.

¨      Orange - Suggestions for improvement (a positive way of saying something is bad).

To concentrate the mind attendees can be asked to consider projects they have worked on in the past or are currently working on, and think about what is good or bad about HOW those projects executed.

Post Project Reviews

This of course means that the ETMC could also be used in the future as a method for executing post project reviews, where the emphasis is not so much based on what people did or did not do, and critiquing them, but focussed on HOW things were done and critiquing the Methods Artefacts, Culture and Environment used. As well as being a much less confrontational approach, this approach is much more useful as the focus is on improving the system people work within rather than the people in the system.
