The fundamental ontology for a Business Model is defined in POED. The Metamodel actually used is 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 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).

There is a Current and Target Operating Model indicating last year's Operating Model and the one you begin 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. The Operating Model consists of the Methods, Artefacts, Culture and Environment (as defined by MACE) required to enable the Business Model.

The Roadmap Model consists fundamentally of 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.

These different Structural states (and the relationships between them) constitute the Structural Roadmap (generally made up of Business and Technical capabilities)

For Transformational Projects, there are the Structural Transformational Models (MACE) and the Transformational Transformation Models (MAGMA) required to execute the projects, which deliver into Operations, Transformation, Support or Direction.

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?
