What is Business Capability Mapping?
While processes defines “how” business activities are carried out, capabilities are used to define “what” an organization does at its core. Capability Mapping enables enterprise architects to illustrate and represent a high-level view of their organization from the perspective of strategic objectives, in order to align their IT strategy with their business strategy. It facilitates the analysis of an organization’s structure and resources which will create a bigger picture of its potential and capability.
Significantly Improve your Business’ Growth Strategies by Mapping Capabilities
By using Business Capability Mapping, you will be able to find and better understand redundancies, synergies and everything that is interconnected at the organizational level. Additionally, you will be able to determine what can be regulated and outsourced, with a clear perspective of resources.
Many business variables can be assessed comprehensively with accurate capability mapping, including business motivators, performance, processes, data, opportunities, etc. Having a 360-degree view like this is critical to distinguishing what is missing and what needs to change to achieve the desired goals and how to prepare for the implementation of these important changes.
