Trade-off typically involves attributes that have a negative influence on each other. The most straightforward example is the tension between the efficiency of a robotic assembly line with the agility of craft manufacturing.

Scoring provides the stakeholder with a language to make a trade-off. Trade-off involves relaxing one attribute while holding another or to identify the architecture’s keystone. Where are stakeholders are unwilling to make trade-offs, we are identifying the critical components that everything in the architecture must support. We have the keystone in the architecture.

Good capability-based planning will use a set of these attrobutes:

  • Performance State - How complete to best-imagined capability is desired
  • Efficiency - How much output we get for a unit of input
  • Fitness - How well the capability aligns with expectations
  • Automation / Repeatability - The level of automation (where systems do the work) or repeatability (where the work is done production-line style)
  • Agility - The level of unexpected change the capability must be able to adapt to
  • Maturity - Strict CMMI Maturity assessment – the ability to manage and control the capability
  • Operating Model - Is it Unified, Replicated, Coordinated or Diversified
  • Performer - Who delivers the capability – internal, division, partner, vendor
