The Business Motivation Model offers a set of valuable concepts to consider, a standard vocabulary, as well as a flexible model to support development processes. Its main concepts are Influencers, Assessments, Ends, and Means, all of which are further broken down into more granular notions.

This model also works well with other tools. For instance, you can use ArchiMate to create a high-level motivation model of the enterprise, but rely on a Business Motivation Model to provide a detailed description of a certain area.
