The Global University Alliance pursues research opportunities, that engage both academic researchers and seasoned professionals in a unique collaboration mode. Current research themes are within Business Model, Strategy, Value Modelling, Business Process Management, Service Orientation, Enterprise Architecture and Information Management, Knowledge Management and Technology Modelling. Each research is conducted and includes the following structure:

The Way of Thinking: the conceptual context, the concepts and their relations:

  • Enterprise Ontology
  • Enterprise Semantics
  • Enterprise Object Modelling
  • Decomposition & Composition
  • Working in layers

The Way of Working: the logical design of the concepts and their relations:

  • LEADing Practices and Best Practice way of working
  • Enterprise Modelling and Enterprise Architecture
  • Enterprise Modelling and Enterprise Architecture skills mapping

The Way of Modelling: the physical execution of the concepts and their relations:

  • LEADing Practices and Best Practice way of working
  • Enterprise Modelling, Enterprise Engineering and Enterprise ArchitectureSkills mapping within Enterprise Modelling, Enterprise Engineering and Enterprise Architecture The Way of Modelling: the physical execution of the concepts and their relations:
    • Enterprise Modelling and Enterprise Architecture way of modelling
    • Business models and how to work with them
    • Business Process Modelling including Extended Business Process Management Notations (X-BPMN)
    • Value & Performance Management and modelling
    • Information Management
    • Technology, in terms of platform and infrastructure modelling
    • Sustainability Framework
    • Business Innovation & Transformation Enablement

We focus on developing underlying and integrated techniques, in terms of frameworks, methods and approaches that incorporates complete business ontology, semantics, object relations within the enterprise modelling techniques e.g. business model, all value aspects, services, process, information, applications, data, platforms, infrastructure and cloud as well as for transformation and innovation modelling.

The Global University Alliance conducted an extensive and wide-ranging research comparing existing Business Model, Engineering, Architecture, Process, Implementation and Project Management standards.

The research analyzed and ranked good or bad practices e.g. what works and what doesn’t and identified interlinks, connectivity’s, best practice and gaps. Realizing after intensive research the need for a fundamental shift. If you are a university teacher or researcher, we realized we had something unique.

Driven by passion and love for Enterprise Modelling and Enterprise Architecture, we start to develop gaps and missing aspects, with both the framework vendors like TOGAF, as well as with companies like IBM, Oracle, CapGemini, HP, SAP etc.
