The New Engineering Game

By: Tim Weilkiens

Overview of this book

Organizations today face an increasingly complex and dynamic environment, whatever their market. This change requires new systems that are built on the foundation of a new kind of engineering and thinking. The New Engineering Game closes the gap between high-level reflections about digitalization and daily engineering methods and tools. The book begins by describing the first three industrial revolutions and their consequences, and by predicting the fourth industrial revolution. Considering the fourth industrial revolution, it explains the need for a new kind of engineering. The later chapters of the book provide valuable principles, patterns, methods, and tools that engineering organizations can learn and use to succeed on the playfield of digitalization. By the end of the book, you’ll have all the information you need to understand the various concepts to take your first steps towards the world of digitalization.

Business Motivation Model

Do you know the difference between objective and goal? Or between strategy and tactic? Or between mission and vision? The Business Motivation Model (BMM) defines these terms and the relationships between them (Object Management Group. Business Motivation Model. formal/15-05-19. 2015).

The BMM provides a structure and definition of high-level business terms. With the BMM, you can describe the motivation of your business (ends) and the means to achieve these ends.

The content in this chapter is inspired by the description of the BMM in the book OCEB 2 Certification Guide: Business Process Management – Fundamental Level, by Tim Weilkiens et al. (Tim Weilkiens, Christian Weiss, Andrea Grass, Kim Duggen. OCEB 2 Certification Guide: Business Process Management – Fundamental Level. 2nd edition. Morgan Kaufmann. 2016).
