Business Capability Models
The following diagram is a partial extract from the architecture view of a Business Capability Model for a public sector environment department:
More importantly when combined with other proprietary techniques in our approach, the Fragile to Agile BCM can be used to determine which business capabilities, and therefore services, can be shared across an organisation. This is a critical design element when embarking on a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) solution strategy which modularises technology to assemble prebuilt and tested components to deliver greater design and business agility.
Finally, the Fragile to Agile BCM is used to define the correct level of modularisation for an organisation’s SOA initiative and defines boundaries for business process and data responsibilities. We refer to this concept as service containers and it solves the service granularity and process/service boundary design issues for BPM/SOA target architectures. These are fundamental design decisions for BPM/SOA and therefore critical success factors in whether or not its promised business agility is realised.
The Fragile to Agile Business Capability Model not only enables these critical design decisions but is fundamental in aligning all other design domains.

Business Capability Models are just one essential part of Fragile to Agile’s End to End Approach.
