Business Capabilities: A Framework for Achieving Strategic and Organizational Alignment

Pariveda Solutions engages with clients to help them improve strategic and organizational alignment. We frame these engagements around Business Capabilities. Business Capabilities can be used as a “bridge” to link Strategy, Initiatives, Costs, etc. in a way that promotes better and more consistent understanding within an organization. The value of Business Capabilities framework stems from three main characteristics:

  • Common Language: Business Capabilities provide a common language so that different business functions can communicate more uniformly. This has some value in and of itself and may be the end goal in some cases. However, much greater value can be realized when business capabilities are used as the common ground for a number of analyses in additional areas, such as competitive advantage/differentiation, cost savings, and budget/investment planning.
  • Wide scope: Business Capabilities can be used in the context of a department, a business unit or an enterprise.
  • Level of detail: Business Capabilities can be expanded upon at virtually any level of detail to suit a broad range of purposes. The goal is to facilitate decisions in a timely and informed way. This white paper presents a set of tools to drive alignment and actions to achieve desired business objectives.
