To stay competitive, enterprises must respond to changes as effectively and efficiently as possible and ensure the employed courses of action, whether in response to change or even to optimize business as usual, fall within the purview of internal and external directives. Often, the traceability from change drivers that led to specific directives being applied to actual business rules implementing the directives is never captured in machine processable and analyzable manner, making compliance to directives hard to track and demonstrate. We present a model-based solution that enables a) modeling directives at various levels of detail on top of extended enterprise architecture-based models of enterprise, b) analyzing the models for compliance, and c) ensuring operationalization of directives. Initial explorations with a real world case study suggest that it might be possible to establish both top-down and bottom-up traceability for directives toward compliance checking.
