Strategic thinking provides a plan for how an organization needs to adapt in the context of a changing and often competitive environment, typically caused by disruptive business and technology forces. Strategic techniques help the analyst to discover, analyze and communicate the strategic concerns of executive level stakeholders. The resulting models and artifacts will form the context for all other analysis work, allowing analysts to understand the business reason for an initiative. Enterprise Architect provides a wide range of tools that can be used to perform the Strategic techniques; these include tools such as the Balanced Scorecard, Business Cases and Organisational modeling, all of which can be linked to the opportunity and solution models allowing traceability from the executive level right through to the implementation artifacts that describe a solution.
