ArchiMate, TOGAF and OGC's Managing Successful Programmes

Business Process Analysis May 19, 2023

The Managing Successful Programmes is designed to be a structure for managing transformation of some kind within an organization, defined as a set of individual projects that are grouped into a program. It very explicitly focuses on how to govern the program in order to ensure not only successful delivery, but delivery that achieves the end goals. To this end, where it stands out from other frameworks that I have seen is a focus on ongoing monitoring of benefits.

One thing this world is not short of is frameworks and guidelines. Just considering the area in which Orbus commonly plays, we have TOGAF (and DODAF and MODAF and a number of others AFs), we have COBIT, we have IT4IT, we have… well, the list goes on and on. In this forest of publications it becomes easy to ignore some of the less well known ones, which is a pity, because at the very least they often have insights or ideas of real value.
