Capability Management

Evaluating the Capabilities of the Service Delivery in more detail concerning the organizations Products, Business Services, Contracts, Value Creation and Processes against the strategic developments and changes in comparison with the KFM (Knowledge Function Model), Strategy & Investment Funding, Portfolio Management, etc.

 

Problems and Solutions

Generally speaking the Capability Map will not be developed in enough detail, so the details of the different Capabilities should be defined. Especially those that support the Service Delivery Capabilities. To be able to do this the ABODE™ and the Enterprise Architecture (EA3.0™) methodologies and solutions, techniques and tools support in:

  1. Defining the Capabilities that are related directly or indirectly to the Service Delivery
  2. Evaluating Products and Services against the Value Creation for each distinguished type of Stakeholders
  3. Develop initial Agile Portfolio Operations according to SAFe™ Lean Portfolio Management principles
    • Support Agile PMO, Lean-Agile Center of Excellence (LACE), and Release Train Engineer (RTE) and Scrum Master Communities of Practice (CoPs)
    • Coordinate value streams
    • Sustain and improve LPM—or, by proxy, the APMO
  4. Develop initial Lean Governance according to SAFe™ Lean Portfolio Management principles
    • Forecast and budget dynamically
    • Measure Lean portfolio performance
    • Coordinate continuous Compliance
  5. Evaluate contracts against Value Creation per type of Stakeholder

Tools to support Capability Management

To design and build up the Capabilities the Architecture tool is used:

  • AAM/Archimate Management 
Designing Capabilities in their Product Delivery context, including the Actors, etc. up to Business Functions
  • APP/Application Portfolio Planned  
Defining the initial plans, PIs, budgets, etc for the Business Cases and Value Streams

Advantages of the Enterprise Architects approach

  1. Stepwise refinement of the Capability development actions
  2. Defining the details of Value Creation within the Capabilities and its main Business Functions
  3. Support and initiate the Transformation Plans
  4. The SAFe™ Core Values are safeguarded and improved as follows
  5. Alignment
  6. Built-in Quality
  7. Transparency
  8. Program Execution
