1. Introduction

The below Business Capability Modeling diagram is created in EdrawMax as the free diagram maker offers tons of customization as per your business stream. Using a business capability map to connect key strategy pillars to their methods of execution makes the business strategy tangible and more transparent to the entire enterprise. 

In the below image, business capabilities are defined in a hierarchy, and the process of decomposing capabilities helps ensure that capabilities are non-overlapping and unique. It should be noted here that business capabilities are uniquely baked on the information they require and use. One capability may use certain information that a similar capability may not require, and so on.

2. What is a Capability Map

Business capacity mapping displays what a company does (its capabilities) to achieve its strategic goals, rather than how it does it (its business processes). The link between company strategy and execution is known as business capabilities.

3. How to Create a Capability Map

Step 1: Recognize the requirements
It's impossible to make supporting decisions if the IT department doesn't know where the company is going. As a result, reviewing your company's strategy and objective documents, or even better, involving those who define the plan, such as the strategy or corporate development department, is a smart place to start.

Step 2: Establish your company's capabilities
Consider the major capabilities that your company requires to function. Only a few crucial ones should be on the first level (level 1). The top 100 LeanIX workplaces were studied.

Step 3: Evaluate your abilities
All Capabilities are not created equal. Assess Capabilities against a set of criteria to serve as a foundation for future analysis and planning.

Step 4: Connect Capabilities to Apps
Link your Capabilities to your apps in the final, but equally crucial, stage. Unlike IT components, applications are usually tied to a specific business goal. Business users collaborate with them to produce value. As a result, apps are the ideal bridge between business and technology architecture."
