  • 13. Purpose: Value Creation & Sustainment 1. Why? To Create Stakeholder Value
    • The model starts on the right with the question “Why? ”
        • Why does the business exist?
        • What is the organization purpose or mission?
        • In answering these questions, we identify the value proposition to various stakeholders.
        • The value propositions should be quantifiable and tangible results.
  • 14. 2. Strategic Goals& Objectives
    • This element of the conceptual model addresses the question - What does the organization wants to achieve? What are the organization objectives?
      • The vision articulates a realistic and attractive future for the organization.
      • Goals are the pathways to the vision. They support the vision and exist within a framework created by the vision.
      • Strategic objectives support strategy and power progress toward the achievement of goals.

  • 16. 3. Strategic Alignment
    • This element of the conceptual model addresses, in part, the question – How are we going to achieve our objectives?
        • Alignment by Design drives both vertical and horizontal alignment.
        • Vertical alignment drives goal alignment or linkage from strategic objectives, process objectives, functional, project, team, and employees’ objectives.
        • Horizontal Alignment drives customer requirements alignment or linkage across the end-to-end customer value stream.
