Is there a robust and detailed example or case study of a “capability model” with its supporting mapping to business processes available with the “point and click” of my mouse in the public domain? Perhaps some of these examples are available in books or in web sites requiring a paid subscription, but are any accessible on the web that do not require a fee or paid subscription?

Hi Tony, As opposed to the old IBM/ACORD models, Panorama 360 from Insurance Frameworks Inc. provides a full capability models, a full information models, an interdependency chart and for the core of the business, it maps the capabilities into processes. This is done for the insurance and wealth management industry. You can find this at www.InsuranceFrameworks.com If you have questions, contact me at Pierre.Gagne@psgconseil.com.

@Tony Phillips, As opposed to the IBM model, Panorama 360 for Insurance and Wealth Management from Insurance Frameworks, has a full capability model, a full information model, including a interdependency chart and then it takes the capabilities and puts them into processes at least for the core industry business. You can find this at www.InsuranceFrameworks.com. Hope this helps.

To add to my previous comment: There is a new Capability Model for insurance and wealth management, including for banks from www.InsuranceFrameworks.com that is now available FREE of CHARGE to the financial industry. All you need to do is to go to the website and request a license online. We now have added a Sparx Enterprise Architect version to the Enterprise Business Framework for the insurance and wealth management industry. The full capability map with definitions and data structure has been ported to Sparx's EA modeling platform. So this provides a drill down capability. This is possibly the most extensive capability map in the industry for the financial industry.

After verification that you are from a financial institution, you will be granted a free license to what is possibly the most extensive set of Capability Map, Enterprise Business Framework, Process and Data models and business methodologies called Panorama 360.
Service Providers and technology vendors to the industry can also request for a license to access Panorama 360.

Per Rick LeMarr's posting, The DoD Architecture Framework is a robust architecture framework for capability modeling and supports a collection of views that allow capabilities to be related to other elements of a integrated architecture. The DoD because of the nature of its mission is more readiness driven rather than goal driven as their primary defense posture is to be able to counter a range of threats that are unpredictable in nature. As a result, the Capability Views provide the planning canvas for a "Capability Configuration" - a collection of capabilities that are developed in a orchestrated manner considering dependencies and development sequences and together provide a integrated response to the threats that must be countered. We (Rao, Reedy and Bellman) have described the capability views in a little more detail in our book on Enterprise Architecture, http://www.amazon.com/Certified-Enterprise-Architect-Study-Certification... Capability based planning is an essential model for technology innovation driven enterprises. Learning to build and use capability views is an essential skill for enterprise architects who have to facilitate the governance and administration of technology development - an expensive beast - to ensure that business areas, business lines, products and services intersect with new capabilities.

You'll have to search around a little, but I have found detailed capability models on various government websites. The Department of the Interior has a good example if I remember right. The state of Virginia has published much of its architecture on the web. I think there are also some Canadian governmental sites. Obviously, Capability Modeling" is seen as Intellectual Property and/or strategic value. Luckily, as citizens, we are on the "inside" of the government corporation (at least in relevance to a paid subscription).

I dont know of any click and play models, and none that link capabilities to processes http://www.apqc.org has a process decomposition for a number of industries http://www.acord.org has the old IBM Insurance Architecture / Capability Model If you find some, please share the link thanks
