Almost all Enterprise disorders and opportunities are linked to multiple functional areas. Unfortunately, no one seems to have the insight. No one is aware of Enterprise Anatomy. If you meet Sales team, they would feel its Manufacturing problem, and if you meet Manufacturing team, they will point it to Engineering, and it goes on.

Human Anatomy vs. Enterprise Anatomy
A quick look at the evolution of medical profession will let you know that the key driver was to increase longevity (life span) of humans. In fact, towards the end of the eighteenth century, the average life span of people even in a country like the USA was around 45-50 years. The lower life span was due to lack of maturity in medical practice to isolate and treat body disorders in timely and consistent manner. Today, life span of large Enterprises (including Fortune lists) is around 45-50 years.Read More
Enterprise Functional Areas (Departments)
The Enterprise anatomy consists of many interacting systems such as Sales, Engineering, Production, Marketing, Support, IT, etc. Each system (department) contributes to the functioning of the Enterprise. Each of the department consists of strategies, processes, technologies, etc. which are collections of six variables (data, function, location, role, time, motivation).Read More
Anatomy of a Functional Area (a Department)
There are six perspectives for every enterprise department which are strategy/services, processes, systems, technology, implementations, and operation. Each perspective will be refined using six enterprise variables (function, rules, processes, network, data, time, etc.
Enterprise Elements as Building Blocks for Enterprise Anatomy
To create strategy, process, system, technology, implementation and operations elements; we need to deconstruct existing composite models around six enterprise variables. We have identified several methodologies to extract elements from different document formats.
Anatomy Driven Enterprise Solutions
The idea is inspired by medical practice, wherein a medical doctor, who understands the human anatomy, uses the symptoms (narrated by a patient) to understand the problem and narrow it down to specific organ/organs, then applies x-ray techniques to get the necessary insight and uses the x-ray for diagnosis before arriving at possible solution options.Read More
