The single slide case study is provided using the Balanced Score Cards (BSC) perspectives to conduct TOGAF EA Operating Model elements on the basis of its Enterprise Business Model requirements.


(*) A business capability is a particular ability or capacity that a business may possess or exchange to achieve a specific purpose or outcome - Ulrich Homann - Microsoft


- A business capability defines “what” a business does at its core. This differs from “how” things are done or where they are done (William Ulrich - BPMInstitute.org / OMG's BASIG )


- Capability (TOGAF 9.1 Definition) : An ability that an organization, person or system possesses. Capabilities are typically expressed in general and high-level terms and typically require a combination of organization, people, processes and technology to achieve. For example, marketing, customer contact or outbound telemarketing.
