Introduction in Business Capabilities - What are they?

Capabilities are a relatively new term in organizations. They are similar functions, processes, and activities, but not the same. To make the difference clear we use the following example:

Suppose a company provides a service to clients to organize annual employee events.

A Business function of the company then would be 'Event Management'. This only tells us that this company manages events, nothing more.

A business function is an unstructured and unordered group of business activities.

A Business process is a group of activities of one or more business functions to optimize alignment between these activities.

Business processes, in this case, could be:

  • event program creation
  • organize locations
  • ordering catering

A Business activity is a group of tasks that can be carried out by one or more persons or systems.

Business activities could be:

  • discuss draft event program with client
  • visit a location
  • compare visited locations

A Business capability is a process, activity, and task that the company can execute at a certain level of performance or service level quality.

Examples of business capabilities in this example case are:

  • Organizing 1000 events per month
  • visiting 100 locations per day
  • 100% self service event planning online

You can think of business capabilities for your company by using the sentence: Are we, or should we be capable of ...
