Welcome to LEADing Practice
LEADing Practice represents a new breed of Enterprise Standards and is recognized as a paradigm shift by the global business and IT community to empower through its Reference Content a structured way of thinking, working and modelling enabling organizations to innovate, transform and deliver value.
The LEADing Practice Enterprise Standards are the result of years of international industry research and expert consensus on repeatable patterns that can be reused and replicated. The enterprise standards are packed as “Reference Content” and is both agnostic and vendor neutral. Designed to be tailored and implemented by any organization, both large and small, regardless of its various frameworks, methods, products/services or activities.
The enterprise standards are developed in the following ways:
- Research and analyse what works, again and again (best practice), and what are unique practices applied by leading organizations (leading practices).
- Identify common and repeatable patterns which provide the basis for the LEADing Practice Enterprise Standards.
- Develop “Reference Content” that increase the level of re-usability and replication within the field of enterprise modeling, enterprise engineering and enterprise architecture.
- Extended with accelerators that adopt and reproduce the identified best practices and leading practices.
Realizing that organizations apply various standards, each of our standards interconnects and are structured in a Way of Thinking, Way of Working, Way of Modelling, Way of Implementation and Way of Governance. Having integrated guiding principles with detailed frameworks, methods, approaches, semantic relations, meta models (object groups, meta objects), architecture and engineering rules, templates (maps, matrices & models) and accelerators (content). The Enterprise Standard Reference Content describe the set of procedures an organization needs to follow in order to replicate the ability to identify, create and realize value in the specified subject/area.
Each enterprise standards reference content is fully integrated with other standards reference content. Ensuring full integration and standardization when applying the reference content. Thereby having the ability to use reference content from strategy to competencies, processes, services as well as operational execution as a cross linkage throughout the Business, Technology and Application layers, which enables innovation and transformation. With the various accelerators within the reference content each organization can benefiting from experience of leading and best practices. Making it easier, less time consuming and cheaper to apply object descriptions, relations and rules to enable Enterprise Modelling, Enterprise Engineering and Enterprise Architecture.
Some of LEADing Practice most known standards are within Business Model, Value Management/ Architecture, Measurements, Analytics, Service Orientation, Testing, Process Modelling/ Architecture as well as Information Modelling/ Architecture. Allowing a structure and common way of thinking, working and modelling across modelling, engineering and architecture concepts.
Acknowledged as a open standards concepts and adopted by most of the fortune 500 and public organizations and is integrated into software solutions such as SAP® (ASAP Methodology), IBM® Rational®, IBM System Architect, iGrafx® and Software AG® (Aris®). Today, LEADing Practice is the fastest growing open source standard development community, supported by the 2nd largest certified community of +3100 practitioners.
