Goal diagram


Goal-driven analysis takes the view that requirements should initially focus on the why and how questions rather than on the question of what needs to be implemented.

Goals are targets for achievement, which provide a framework for the desired system. They are high level objectives of the organization or system, they express the rationale for proposed systems and guide decisions at various levels within the enterprise. Goals are defined by the OMGBMM” (Business Motivation Metamodel) standard.


Goal diagrams represent goals, their dependencies (part of, refine, negative or positive influence, guarantee, measure, assignment), and their properties. For each goal, it is important to express how and when this goal will be checked, what the concrete success criteria are, and to whom or what the goal (role, organizational unit, processus) is assigned (responsibility).
