The Jibility Steps are comprised of six simple steps: Challenges, Objectives, Capabilities, Actions, Initiatives and Roadmap. In each step, you are tasked with answering the questions shown in the diagram below.
Broadly, the Jibility six steps can be categorized as follows
- Understand Why - Challenges and Objectives
Most organizations have a strategic vision or set of strategic goals. In the Challenge step you can articulate what problems or opportunities you are solving for with respect to your strategic vision or goals. In the Objective step you can define the outcomes that must be achieved in order to address the challenges. By defining your challenges and objectives this will help you to understand the "Why?".
- Analyze What - Capabilities and Actions
The Capabilities step helps you to map and analyze the capability building blocks in your organization that needs to change in order to meet your objectives and address your challenges. The Actions step helps you to define the activities or tasks that must be completed to implement the changes to your capabilities. These two steps will help you to analyze "What?" needs to change.
- Visualize How - Initiatives and Roadmap
The Initiative step help you to formulate and prioritize the packages of work required to implement the changes and the Roadmap step helps you to visualize how these changes should be sequenced along the time horizon. The Initiative and Roadmap steps helps you to visualize "How?".
Jibility is designed to support an Agile approach to developing a strategic roadmap. You can choose to start at any step, work backwards and forwards, and cycle through multiple iterations to create a minimal viable strategic roadmap.
