Business Strategy Kiviat Models


This section covers business strategy kiviat models and their use by planners to better understand the current and proposed improvement approaches to achieve strategic goals.

This diagram graphically shows where the organization unit is by relevant area and where it proposes to be over an indicated time period. It is accompanied by planning notes that describe the changes proposed in a 'problem'/'solution' format. It gives planners a quick visual footprint of core functionality coverage - where coverage is acceptable and where more coverage is needed.

A Kiviat Diagram is composed of axes extending from a central point. Each axis represents a data category such as functionality/feature coverage. Each axis is scaled according to coverage values for that functionality (usually its a percentage of a preceived maximum).
