In Jibility, you can start from any step and elaborate backwards or forwards from there.  Starting with the Challenge step through to the Courses of Action 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 Courses of Actions into a package of work.  This is illustrated in the diagram below.

The relationships between each step are as follows:

  1. A Challenge can be linked to zero or more Objectives;
  2. An Objective can be linked to zero or more Challenges;
  3. A Capability can be linked to zero or up to three Objectives;
  4. A Course of Action is unique to each Capability and a Capability can have zero or more Courses of Actions;
  5. An Initiative is composed of zero or more Courses of Actions; and
  6. A Roadmap is composed of Initiatives and dependencies placed onto a grid defined by themes (rows) and stages (columns).
