There are countless ways of modeling business organizations and activities. Most any communication in business can be depicted in some type of graphical model.
Graphical representation of business components can substantially increase the message to users – especially when communicating this message to other business organizations, languages and cultures. However; a poorly constructed model can do more harm than good by confusing the audience.
The planning of a business model is a critical step prior to starting model development. Especially in redesign efforts when the process is created based on the business models, a poorly developed model can cause substantial process delays and inefficiencies. If you start with incorrect assumptions, your solutions will be poorly constructed.
Much of the information to develop the ideas into models will include knowledge that is locked in people’s heads, logic buried in computer programs and databases, and activities that are both documented and undocumented. It can be very difficult to compile all of these types of information into meaningful enterprise models. It is crucial that these models accomplish the task of taking this information and displaying it in a graphical form that anyone in the organization can understand.
Model developers must be able to describe and define business ideas in terms that can be readily expressed, understood and executed by different parties. It is essential to understand, formulate and agree on an established set of rules for developing the models. Turning all of this “unspoken” knowledge into a form that can be communicated, understood and used by others in the organization. This is the only way that the final modeling product will achieve the results that your organization is expecting.
