TOGAF's Transformational focus is mainly on the Initiating and Elaboration phases of projects and the governance of Construction. It does cover Roadmapping to a small degree but only really from the point of roadmapping for a very large project or a program. It doesn't cover Construction or Transitioning and its Structural focus is very IT oriented. It does provide a large amount of detail but largely because of this and other issues it is not very usable and difficult to implement.


Zachman's Transformational focus is largely strategic in nature and does cover most of the project domain but is very IT oriented. It doesn't provide much detail at all and not much guidance on how to use it either.


PEAF's Transformational focus is on the Strategising, Roadmapping and Governance of the Initiating phases of the Transformation domain. Structurally it includes IT but is not limited to IT, instead covering the entire Enterprise domain. It offers a moderate amount of detail and concentrates mostly on the fundamentals that Enterprises need to get right. Because of this it is extremely usable and provides a lot of help to implement it - The Adoption section - which constitutes the Maturity Model.
