Agile activities for keeping the BAF and TOM(s) alive and relevant over time – dynamic not static.
Anchor would ‘anchor’ the BAF and TOM(S) into the real business like a Critical Success Factor (CSF).  It’s often not necessary to provide the same layers of detail across the whole of a BAF or TOM, rather a few key drilldowns will suffice for the exec’s practical purposes.
Assurance the actions for making sure that all is as expected and stakeholders can be assured of the representations.
Business Architecture Framework (BAF) overarching structure for the entire business into which all else fits, being agnostic to accommodate existing or partial work done.
BPMN Business Process Management Notation (2x) which is the international standard file format used to describe processes used by our platform.
Canvas Canvas or business model canvas is the blank canvas that is used to formulate and describe the model or representation of the business. We use graphics or Mind Mapping to create the canvas, anything your leadership is comfortable with works.
Contributors people within the work place who can be proactive in establish the OM and TOM and keep it Agile over time.  Small bursts of contributions rather than a major distraction to their main role.
Drill Down moving through the layers of increasing detail into the operations of the business to inform the use of the BAF and TOM(S).
Expertise as a Service providing specific support and assistance such as Question and Answer or packaged deliverable without the need for commissioning a specific consultant or being on-site.
Governance the overall Board/Exec level control and oversight of the business through its BAF.
Globe the universe of all activities, features and functions that are make a BAF and ROMS workable.
Ideation literally consistently creating ideas and thinking in response to identified change or need (Mind Mapping?).
Knowledge Base the collection of objects on computer within the BAF and TOMS for the purpose of learning, management, and assurance.
Normalisation ensuring the language and terms used are in common, master data conventions are consistent, performance measures and KPI are practical, reporting cycles follow, decision making is consistent and tested for consistency and learning.
Operating Model (OM) the current state of operations for the whole of the business or by division/country etc.
Platform Business Optix and uses BOx terminology.
Policy the usually written description of how an organisation expects something to be managed or achieved.
Process the sequence of actions, choices and steps that collectively achieve something for the organisation.
Representation the BAF and TOM(S) are visualisation of the collected activities taking place within and without the business.
Simulation where the Target Operating Models are worked with live data to test/inform ideation or assure a decision.
Simulation where the Target Operating Models are worked with live data to test/inform ideation or assure a decision.
Social Enterprise Model operational model orientated towards people and structure, same otherwise.
Transformation journey the business takes to move from current state unknown to the BAF and TOM(S) being in place and alive. The stages are: Mining – Adaptation – Implementation – Emerge – Agile.  This populates the BAF and TOMS
Transparency assuring that what the BAF and TOM(S) represent is in practice what is taking place and owned appropriately.
