  2. 2. Introduction • This presentation focuses on evaluating the Degree of Systemicity of the EBMM-TRIADS based on the novel Integrative Propositional Analysis (IPA). “If we can quantify the Systemicity of our theoretical models “on paper” then we can predict which ones are more likely to be more effective in practical application” – Dr. Steven E. Wallis Copyrights (c) 2011-2014 Pragmatic Cohesion Consulting 2
  3. 3. Integrative Propositional Analysis (IPA) • IPA is a novel paradigm coined by Dr. Steven E. Wallis Director of the Foundation for the Advancement of Social Theory (FAST). • IPA is an innovative approach to the science of conceptual systems. IPA’ s fundamental premise is stated as: “If we live in a world of systems, that world would best be described by theories that are systemic” – Dr. Steven Wallis Copyrights (c) 2011-2014 Pragmatic Cohesion Consulting 3
  4. 4. Integrative Propositional Analysis (IPA) • Dr. Wallis defines a Conceptual System as: “A set of interrelated propositions (They are useful for understanding and engaging the world)” • He also proposes the following rational behind IPA: 1-Nothing can be deeply understood except by its effects on other things (so, we privilege causal relationships) 2-Things are better understood through dual description, Emergence, Holons, Dialectic, Partial Causes/partial Results, Multiple Independent Variables (so, we privilege concatenated structures) Copyrights (c) 2011-2014 Pragmatic Cohesion Consulting 4
  5. 5. Integrative Propositional Analysis (IPA) • The following steps must be followed to apply IPA: – 1. Identify propositions within one or more conceptual systems – 2. Diagram those propositions with one box for each concept and arrows indicating directions of causal effects. – 3. Find linkages between causal concepts and resultant concepts between all propositions – 4. Identify the total number of concepts – 5. Identify concatenated concepts (they have at least two causal linkages reaching them) – 6. Divide the number of concatenated concepts by the total number of concepts in the model to find the model degree of Systemicity. Copyrights (c) 2011-2014 Pragmatic Cohesion Consulting 5
  6. 6. About the EBMM-TRIADS™ • The EBMM-TRIADs constitute a conceptual meta-model of a business architecture. They are not an actual business architecture but a model of the types of concepts and relationships involved in the definition of an actual business architecture. • The EBMM-TRIADS elegantly break down the complexity found in Nick Malik's initial EBMM by showing how its business architecture elements participate in 4 very common views of any Business Architecture: Strategy, Motivation, Responsibilities, and Operation. • We strongly recommend viewing our introductory presentation about the EBMM-TRIADS Copyrights (c) 2011-2014 Pragmatic Cohesion Consulting 6
  7. 7. EBMM-TRIADS High Level Conceptual View • The EBMM-TRIADS high level conceptual view defines 4 groups of Business Architecture conceptual elements. • Each group is named after 4 fundamental interrogatives: WHY, WHO, WHAT, and HOW. • We consider each interrogative group an IPA Concept; therefore the EBMM-TRIADS high level conceptual view has a total of 4 IPA Concepts. WHY WHO HOW Copyrights (c) 2011-2014 Pragmatic Cohesion Consulting WHAT 7
  8. 8. EBMM-TRIADS High Level Conceptual View • Each interrogative group contains Business Architecture conceptual elements that participate in relationships with each other. • Those relationships can be among conceptual elements that belong to the same interrogative group (e.g. Success Metrics and Measures [WHY] set Performance Criteria for Business Strategies and Objectives [WHY]) or that belong to different interrogative groups (e.g. Business Strategies and Objectives [WHY] drive changes to Business Capabilities [WHAT]).

  9. 9. EBMM-TRIADS High Level Conceptual View • We create an IPA causal concept linkage between two interrogative groups when the first interrogative group contains at least one Business Architecture conceptual element that participates in a relationship with a conceptual element from the second group. • Therefore the EBMM-TRIADS high level conceptual view has:  7 IPA causal linkages.  3 Concatenated Concepts (WHY, WHAT, and HOW) WHY WHO HOW Copyrights (c) 2011-2014 Pragmatic Cohesion Consulting WHAT 9
  10. 10. EBMM-TRIADS High Level Conceptual View • The EBMM-TRIADS high level conceptual view has an IPA degree of Systemicity equal to ¾ = 75% • This high score is a strong indicator of the practical usefulness of the EBMMTRIADS! WHY WHO HOW Copyrights (c) 2011-2014 Pragmatic Cohesion Consulting WHAT 10
  11. 11. EBMM-TRIADS High Level Conceptual View • The EBMM-TRIADS high level conceptual view for Strategy is defined by the 3 IPA Concepts: WHY, HOW, and WHAT. • It has 2 IPA Concatenated Concepts: HOW and WHAT • Therefore It has an IPA degree of Systemicity equal to 2/3 = 66% WHY HOW Copyrights (c) 2011-2014 Pragmatic Cohesion Consulting WHAT 11
  12. 12. EBMM-TRIADS High Level Conceptual View • The EBMM-TRIADS high level conceptual view for Motivation is defined by the 3 IPA Concepts: WHY, WHO, and HOW. • It has 2 IPA Concatenated Concepts: HOW and WHY • Therefore It has an IPA degree of Systemicity equal to 2/3 = 66% WHY WHO HOW Copyrights (c) 2011-2014 Pragmatic Cohesion Consulting 12
  13. 13. EBMM-TRIADS High Level Conceptual View • The EBMM-TRIADS high level conceptual view for Responsibilities is defined by the 3 IPA Concepts: WHY, WHO, and WHAT. • It has 1 IPA Concatenated Concept: WHAT • Therefore It has an IPA degree of Systemicity equal to 1/3 = 33% Copyrights (c) 2011-2014 Pragmatic Cohesion Consulting WHY WHO WHAT 13
  14. 14. EBMM-TRIADS High Level Conceptual View • The EBMM-TRIADS high level conceptual view for Operation is defined by the 3 IPA Concepts: HOW, WHO, and WHAT. • It has 2 IPA Concatenated Concepts: HOW and WHAT • Therefore It has an IPA degree of Systemicity equal to 2/3 = 66% WHO HOW Copyrights (c) 2011-2014 Pragmatic Cohesion Consulting WHAT 14
  15. 15. The 4 EBMM-TRIADS™ IPA Systemicity equals 75% WHO WHO WHY STRATEGY HOW OPERATION • STRATEGY: HOW does WHAT fulfill WHY? • MOTIVATION: HOW does WHO influence WHY? • RESPONSIBILITIES: WHY does WHO do WHAT? • OPERATION: HOW does WHO do WHAT?
