The Enterprise Business Motivation Model has gone through a long list of changes since the original article was published over two years ago. I’ve spent considerable time working through the model and getting feedback from colleagues from around the world.
I’d like to give special thanks to Michael Davison, JD Beckingham, Neil McWhorter, Bruce McNaughton, Henk Harms, Bill Ulrich, Jim Rhyne, Kirk Rheinlander, Leo de Sousa, Yelena Edelstein, Al Newman, Amy Nguyen, David Vugteveen, and many others who have commented, criticized, and asked for clarifications. Without your concerns and your insight, the EBMM would not move forward. Thank you!
There are many changes since the last public version (v1).
Of course, we are not done. I am publishing version 3.5 in order to insure that my conversations with other Business Architects has a current footing. The following concerns have been shared and are under consideration for future versions:
As always, I welcome feedback and input. I’m proud of where the EBMM has come so far and look forward to working with exceptional people to discuss and describe future changes to the model.
Note: I didn’t keep a careful list of the folks who offered valuable feedback on the model. If you offered feedback, and I didn’t mention you above, please accept my apologies and send me a note. I’ll update this post.
