The figure below uses model elements from the ArchiMate Framework to explain a pattern to document gaps for current systems and project portfolios (agenda). The gaps are being derived by evaluating operations and agenda with respect to requirements implied by either principles or goals (of stakeholders). For a goal to be achieved, performance indicators of the operations must have certain values.

An ArchiMate pattern to explain how to derive gaps for current systems with operations that are not congruent with adopted (enterprise architecture) principles and goals

Note: The formulation of the above pattern has been helped by the contents of Australian Government Enterprise Architecture Principles (March, 2014) (© Commonwealth of Australia 2013) which moreover includes a helpful set of principles with rationale and their implications for public sector agencies.
