Business Motivation Model (BMM)

The Business Motivation Model (BMM) is an OMG modeling notation for support of business decisions about how to react to a changing world. An enterprise would use it by acquiring a BMM modeling tool and then creating its own BMM - populating the model with business information specific to the enterprise. There are two broad purposes:

To capture decisions about the reaction to change and the rationale for making them, with the intent of making them shareable, increasing clarity, and improving decision-making by learning from experience.

To reference the outcomes of the decisions to their effect on the operational business (e.g. changes made to business processes and organization responsibilities), providing traceability from influencer to operational change.[1]
