Business Capabilities Analysis

Business Capability Analysis, in simple terms, describes the distinct functions of the business. It can be performed to assess performance, determine the risk areas of the business, and prioritize investments, especially in terms of time, effort, and money.

This analysis is accomplished by first identifying the University’s set of core business capabilities and supporting systems and then determining how people, processes, and functions are integrated to enhance Northwestern’s values.
