The graphical representation of ArchiMate's strategy elements

The relationship of these model elements with those of motivation and Implementation and Migration Extension is illustrated in the pattern Driver goal gap pattern (Check & Plan) and in the figures explaining the Physical Elements and the implementation and migration elements.

The figure explaining the physical elements also includes model elements from the Motivation Extension, the Technology Layer and the Business Layer and how they influence the strategy formulation (Stakeholder, Driver and Outcome).

The figure explaining the implementation and migration elements explains how plateaus and work packages support realizing courses of action, value streams and capabilities.


The motivation extension model elements are particularly relevant for the (intended) mission outcomes of stakeholders at the levels of scope: segment, agency, sector, federal, national and international.
