1 Towards a Unified Business Strategy Language: A Meta-model of Strategy Maps Constantinos Giannoulis Michael Petit Jelena Zdravkovic

2 Agenda Research scope Strategy maps The Strategy Map Meta-model Future work

3 Research Scope Goal modeling: linking stakeholders with artifacts The holy grail?: An artifact should serve the purpose envisioned by stakeholders! System Development: GORE [1], BMM [2] IT alignment, IT Strategy Enterprise’s strategic alignment, Business Strategy?

4 Research Scope Current efforts Combinations of languages to align strategy and value proposition to related operational processes Examples: INSTAL, business modeling with UML, CREWS-L’Ecritoire, e3- value, 3g framework, i* & RAD, goal modeling and value modeling ontology, i* and strategy maps [3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10] Shortcomings Operationally focused Lack goal traceability No clear link between value creation and system goals No support on different stakeholder view integration and evaluation Lack of requirement to strategy traceability Method specific

5 Research Scope

6 Background Goal modeling languages In RE [11]: various levels of applicability (e.g. the RE process) semi-formal vs formal In business business model & business plan expressiveness (BMM) goal oriented enterprise (Popova & Sharpanskykh) [12] Business Strategy [13] The resource-based view The industrial organization perspective The Schumpeterian view of competition

7 Background Inspired by the Unified Enterprise Modeling Language, UEML[14]: We aim at a core language for modeling business strategy aligning business strategy to system requirements We intend to analyze and evaluate goal-oriented languages against a well defined ontological base  Our ontological base: a unified business strategy meta-model (business strategy concepts and frameworks)

8 Strategy Maps

9 Strategy Maps (what?) Four organizational perspectives of the Balance Scorecard framework (BSC): financial, customer, internal, learning and growth Both external & internal (all business activities) Structure: Cause-effect links/assumptions Build top-down (causality is bottom-up) Communicate direction and priorities Strategy Maps (why?) [15] A mediator between Mission, core values, Vision and Strategy to the concrete operational actions Provides a visual representation

10 Strategy Maps The template [15]

11 The Strategy Map Meta-model Modeling Strategy Maps the Strategy Map template provides the main concepts Applications from literature provide conceptual variations emboddied through constrains Cardinality restrictions between classes both from the template and literature

12 The Strategy Map Meta-model

13 Includes all elements of Strategy Maps Supports utilization scenarios: As-is To-be Generalizes some elements for applicability (Groups) Introduces explicitely user defined groups and perspetives Separates classes and instances (application)

14 Future Work Extend the meta-model using BSC Provide a richer semantic basis and enrich it with concepts from other approaches representing busines strategies Start evaluating how goal modeling languages (i*, KAOS, BMM, etc.) can express business strategy using this meta-model
