One of the biggest challenges Enterprise Architecture teams face is ensuring this alignment of strategy to execution between the business and IT.
Business Capability Planning (BCP) is a powerful tool to ensure the alignment of IT transformation to business strategy. It provides the “Rosetta Stone” to align strategy, goals, business priorities and business processes to investments in applications, organizations and technology. Capabilities define what an organization needs to be able to do, capable of, independent from the organization structure, to successfully achieve the desired business outcomes.
Capability-based planning can be used to set investment priorities that will deliver the most value to an organization, in line with this strategy.

“Capabilities allow Enterprise Architects to initiate discussions with business leaders in terms of business outcomes, while having a link between what an organization can do with how it does it.”
