Capability vs Process

 , updated on
A capability describes what an organization or team can do. A process describes how they get it done.
It is common for organizations to document both capabilities and processes as part of their architecture. These are essentially views that can be used for different audiences and purposes. For example, executives may be interested in capabilities and many not require the detail of processes.
Both capabilities and processes are often documented at two or three levels of detail. For example, capabilities may be captured as a three level tree structure that defines what an organization does at different levels of granularity.
It is common to map between capabilities and processes for the purposes of reporting and analysis of an organization's architecture.
