Tribal nations are often unclear as to how strategic decisions are made, why priority is given to certain objectives, and how the overall strategic planning process is achieved.
Tribal nations require a unified and validated view of tribal capabilities that aligns initiatives, investments, and strategy in order to further their nation building efforts.
The Tribal Nation Reference Architecture provides a basis for the development of IT solutions that encompass all departments, programs, and services that deliver the greatest value, eliminate duplication, increase efficiency, and reduce cost.
Successful nation building requires planning that:
Accurately reflects your tribal nation capabilities.
Is traceable so all levels can understand how decisions are made.
Makes efficient use of your tribal nation’s resources.
To accomplish this, the reference architect must engage contributors to document the current state of your tribal nation and drive planning with a customized reference architecture.
