Abstract:Capability-based planning comes to incorporate the development of the capabilities into the architectural effort following the ADM cycle of TOGAF, and everything that this pertains. A complete method for capability-based planning starts from the business strategy, then goes through the determination of the strategic business capabilities, and concludes by guiding the architectural work up to the post-deployment of the business capabilities. This method consists of three phases that respectively address the why, the what and the how of the process. Since capabilities are not currently addressed by the ArchiMate modeling language, four new concepts are proposed for extension: capability, capability increment, metric, and resource, as those essential for modeling purposes. ArchiMate’s syntax is then extended with these concepts, and four new viewpoints are distinguished which focus on different architectural areas. The proposed method and language extension are showcased by means of an example, using the fictional organization ArchiSurance as a case. Along the way, a number of models are created, most of them including prescriptive elements. The most important aspects of the above body of work have been validated with four experienced professionals from the areas of Enterprise Architecture and the Business.
