There are often gaps between corporate strategies and implementations. Companies find it hard to get from vision to implementation. In the past, attempts have been made to implement the strategically derived business models on an operational basis. Some of these approaches attempt to model the business model (e.g., Business Model Canvas), others try to model the value flow, e.g. Porters Value Chain, All Value Networks or Value Stream Mapping. Others consider partial aspects such as business processes (BPM) or projects (PM). A comprehensive approach for value management combining all aspects of a company could not be made available. A model-based approach to comprehensive value modeling within the company did not exist for a long time.
Finally, in 2015, the Value Delivery Modeling Language (VDML) was released by the Object Management Group in version 1.0. The VDML provides a modeling language for the analysis and for the design of an organization with a special consideration of the value contribution and the value exchange.
It provides opportunities for abstraction of company activities aimed at executives, as well as a presentation of supporting details for business analysts. Strategies and business models can be directly linked to daily activities, existing roles and capabilities, financial resources, etc. In this way, it is possible to model actual business models, but also to derive target business models from them and to derive consequential changes and effects. For example, the question of whether a merger or a split-off is meaningful can be analyzed on the basis of the VDML models. VDML is therefore a decision-making and scenario tool, which makes it possible to continuously adapt the business model to changing conditions.
MINAUTICS uses model-based value management to analyze and advise companies in all industries. The modeled dependencies cover causal relationships and make decisions faster and safer.
