Dear all,

I am contemplating how to set up Structure Models and VACD etc for the purpose of the following context:

We are a multinational company, with multiple legal entities (=nation states), multiple BAs (spanning multiple nation states), where BAs are broken down into BUs (again traversing multiple legal entities). In addition, we have a corporate structure.

I see that we in practice in as-is have:

* Global processes - concerns every BU, or is of interest to every BU

* Nation state processes, typically related to HR or some local laws

* Per BA processes, typically BA management across BUs

* Per BU processes

In addition, there is a very large project upcoming, that will construct many global processes tied to a global system.

Furthermore, we wish to achieve more 'sameness', despite the current governance and P&L structures which can be drivers for driving per BU processes.

My thoughts so far are that

* Roles are always made visible across the enterprise, with naming conventions that help modellers/browsers understand where they come from.

However, I am not yet sure of how to set up the process architecture:

I can set up a structure diagram to point to 'global as is' VACD, 'BA as is (which then point to BU as is'). The same top structure diagram can point to 'the big project to be', which then becomes a hierarchy in its own right.

I am listening to any input for how you have made top level process architectures in similar contexts. Thank you in advance for any advice you may extend! :-)
