In Jibility, you can start from any step and elaborate backwards or forwards from there. Starting with the Challenge step through to the Actions step, you are decomposing a step to formulate the next. For example, a challenge is decomposed into a set of objectives and an objective is decomposed into a set of linked capabilities and so forth. However, initiatives are formed by aggregating or composing actions into a package of work. This is illustrated in the diagram below.
The relationships between each step are as follows:
- A challenge can be linked to zero or more objectives;
- An objective can be linked to zero or more challenges;
- A capability can be linked to zero or up to three objectives;
- An action is unique to each capability and a capability can have zero or more actions;
- An initiative is composed of zero or more actions; and
- A roadmap is composed of initiatives and dependencies placed onto a grid defined by themes (rows) and stages (columns).
