What are business capabilities?

Business Capabilities are an encapsulation of “What” a business does. Business capabilities are a foundational building block of business architecture and help provide a set of stable entities to model an enterprise.

What is the value of business capabilities?

The term “Rosetta Stone of business and technology alignment,” captures the value of capabilities succinctly.

In a vast and complex firm, a detailed capability model allows for mapping to technology components to understand the functional sufficiency and footprint of applications to meet business needs.

Instead of project-based requirements, capability anchored specifications help companies focus on capability evolution, not siloed project execution

Using capabilities as Lego blocks, business owners and product managers can communicate their needs better to allow for optimal technology enablement.

A detailed capability model helps in vendor evaluation and selection.

It helps you identify conflicts, overlaps, and redundancies and zero in on the weak areas to develop a roadmap to evolve the capabilities.

What are the benefits of a generic/sample business capabilities map?

A generic/sample business capability map will help jumpstart the capability modeling and business architecture efforts. While our goal is to offer a set of capabilities that are 60-80% relevant, there is always that 20-40% that may need to be modified and customized to capture the unique essence of your enterprise. Also, having a pre-built sample capability model helps in a) not missing out on the core and distinct business capabilities and b) spend 80% of your time on the 20% of the capabilities that make you who you are!

Capstera team of experts have experience not only in creating a comprehensive and robust business architecture software but have built several capability models across functional areas and industry sectors.

Why should I pay for a business capability model?

The domain knowledge and intellect that went into constructing the capability models is very high. The cost is less than 2-hours of time of a moderately-priced consultant. Moreover, much less than the collective loaded costs of half-a-dozen people whiteboarding the capabilities over several sessions.

Consider the ROI:

  • The time savings and acceleration a sample business capability model offers
  • The value of focusing on what makes you unique rather than work on the entire list of capabilities.
  • The opportunity to do the day job rather than create a capability model from scratch.
