What is a Business Capability Map?

Business capability mapping is the process of modeling what an organization does to reach its goals and objectives through qualitative analysis and information gathering.

How to Create a Business Capability Map?

  • Gather the information you need. Identify the key details of the business objectives needed to achieve within the given time period.
  • Create a rough outline of the map by arranging the gathered information in a chronological order. This step will also help you filter out the key details from the rest of the identified information.
  • Creately offers an array of templates for you to pick a layout for your chart and get started quickly.
  • Once you have selected the Creately template, add objectives/capabilities to the horizontal line boxes in the chart and the action items to the vertical boxes for each objective.
  • Style your chart and add images if necessary. With Creately, you can quickly style your chart with attractive and professional color themes. While you can import images, clip art, gifs, logos, icons, etc. right from your device to customize your chart, you can also use the built-in Google image search to find more images.
  • Share your graph with other key stakeholders or team members to gather their feedback with contextual comments on Creately. You can download your business capability map as SVGs, PNGs, JPEGs, or PDFs for printing, sharing, publishing, or presentations. You can also share it with anyone via email.
