This paper presents an approach to increase the value gained from enterprise modeling activities in an organization. The main objective of the approach is to facilitate communication and coordination of modeling initiatives between stakeholders and within and across projects. The approach as a normative process model is presented and discussed in the context of case projects and activities, and we conclude that although work remains both on sophistication of the approach and on validation of its general applicability and value, our results show that it addresses recognized challenges in a useful way.
