In enterprise architecture an “alignment diagram” is an artifact that depicts the linkage of a system or other transformation through various levels of justification back to strategic goals. The combined model described here allows a new sort of alignment (line of sight) diagram as shown in figure 7. This can be used to show how each measure is derived from the level above, providing a visual kind of proof of alignment. It can also provide insight into missing measures. In the example in Figure 7 no MOEs and MOPs support the number of products in a production line or the time to market, indicating possible improvements in metrics to achieve the strategic goal of agility. Alignment shown in the example can be improved significantly.
