Business Capability Model Examples

Business capability model examples come in handy for those of you interested in knowing the structure and composition of a business capabilities map. (Please note that the business capability model examples offered by Capstera are paid products.) Business architecture practitioners differ in how they build capability models, and how much importance they attribute to business capabilities models, and how they leverage the capabilities in day-to-day work as well as business transformation.
