Industry Standards

How We Develop Our Standards

The LEADing Practice Industry Standards are the result of years of international academic research and industry expert consensus on repeatable patterns that can be reused and replicated. The Industry Standards are packaged as ‘Reference Content’, and is both agnostic and vendor neutral. They have been exclusively tailored and designed to fit the needs and demands of specific industries and organizations, both large and small, regardless of its various frameworks, methods, approaches, products, services and activities.

The Industry Standards are developed in the following ways:

  • Research and analyze what works – again and again (Best Practices) – and discover the unique industry-specific aspects applied by leading organizations (Leading Practices).
  • Identify common and repeatable patterns which provide the basis for the Industry Standards.
  • Develop ‘Reference Content’ that increase the level of industry-specific reusability and replication within the disciplines of Enterprise Modelling, Enterprise Engineering and Enterprise Architecture.
  • Extend with performance and value accelerators with unique industry aspects from the identified Best Practices and Leading Practices.

Each of the 52 Industry Standard Reference Content areas are fully integrated with other frameworks, methods and approaches, such as TOGAF, META, FEAF, etc. This ensures full integration and standardization when applying the reference content into your organization, programs and/or projects, thereby having the ability to use our reference content across topics like strategy, capabilities, roles, and process, service and value aspects and technology as well as operational execution between them, creating a cross link throughout the Business, Information, and Technology layers.

All LEADing Practice Industry Standards are also marked and protected with the official ((O))LEAD Trademark registered in the US and EU. See the following image of the ((O))LEAD Trademark.
