that empower enterprises of all shapes and sizes in different industries, locations, cultures and ecosystems, to proactively navigate their strategy-to-execution journey to capture and deliver value, following four structured and guided paths.

Optimize business agility to provide speed to market, speed of service as well as quality of service along the transformation journey. Instill a customer-centric culture along with the optimal location footprint for execution.
THE STRATEGY JOURNEY Framework builds on many existing best practices to provide the next logical step in the strategy-to-execution lifecycle... by joining the dots... between strategy design through ideation... and projects where transformation is executed.
It is a Business Architecture methodology that enables the logical layer of the enterprise to be built out, to provide that bridge between conceptual designs (that are directional rather than logical or description) provided by methodologies* such as:
and the physical and implementation layers of an enterprise where the detailed activities including actions, tasks and events, operated by people or by machines (through machine code including Artificial Intelligence), take place.
What is the purpose of the business? What are the organizational values? What is the Mission and Vision? What goals and strategic objectives does the enterprise want to achieve by when? Develop a business blueprint and game plans to bring these to life for your organization.
NB: The Mission Model Blueprint template is an adapted and updated build on the Balance Scorecard (BS) and Business Motivation Model (BMM) to cover digital transformation
Who are the customers, what is the product and service mix (ie. packages), and what are the distribution networks or platforms required to commercialize the business and drive profit growth? What are the funding and asset strategies required?
* All 5 templates in this model are linked to the Business Model Canvas (BMC) and Value Proposition Canvas (VPC), providing a logical expansion into the detail level of detail required for execution
What constitutes value to customers, users and different internal stakeholders and partners?

What are gaps or opportunities for innovation and by which the enterprise capitalize to produce added value?
* The Customer Journey Map and Value Stream Designer templates link to the Value Proposition Canvas (VPC), providing a logical expansion into the next level of detail required for execution
** The Value Chain Modeller template is linked to value chain in the Operating Model Canvas (OMC)
How is the organization operating, using people, process, data and technology or system resources?

How is the enterprise performing and what is the current state maturity of its capabilities?

How do you change and adapt the enterprise as the ecosystem around it changes. What’s your plan for the future? How will you align change initiatives to ensure delivery of strategic outcomes? How do you build agility, accountability and action in the enterprise, manage and/or change culture and transform through co-creation?
NB: All 5 templates in this model can be linked to multiple project management practices including the Agile Project Management Framework, and even Holacracy
It has been proven that design thinking practices like whiteboarding and using POST-ITs on a wall can activate up to 80% more of your brain by taping into your creativity.
