The ESD Business Model for public sector activity has been around for a few years now.

ESD model

It has a lot of valuable content but it could be made more accessible and dynamic. There is some free software that would help; Cmap. It has been around for many years and seems to have matured and stabilised. It allows clicking down to more detailed models and documentation references.

Although it is called Concept Modelling – it does work for business models and generic ontologies. It is even self-defining, see the home page of the Institute of Human and Machine Cognition.

If it were to be adopted as a standard by the ESD Toolkit and LeGSB, levels of common understanding should increase. Give it a try – it’s easier than Powerpoint or Visio for this task.
