Enterprise Elements | Base Elements


What is being done or going on in our enterprise or its ecosystem.


An activity represents something happening that is relevant to our enterprise. It can be something done by people individually or collectively, such as work, sports, or performances, for example. An activity can also be used to refer to something that simply happens, without specifying who is doing what. There are many events or processes unfolding within our enterprise that are relevant in themselves, without having to specify any actors involved. Activities capture the behaviours and movements of our enterprise. This enables us to model and map the dynamic nature of our enterprise and its organisation(s).
