This paper presents a method that is used to enrich existing architecture frameworks or methods by enabling development of situated capability viewpoints. The method addresses the issue that in many cases viewpoint definitions suggest a singular way to consider and model a domain. This issue is particularly prevalent in frameworks developed by one profession, such as IT architects, where general concepts, such as capability and service, may have narrow definitions. The method we suggest is to start with a base capability viewpoint and then tailor that into specific situated capability viewpoints by incorporating situational concerns. Each tailored viewpoint supports a stakeholder’s work situation and aims to increase intended and actual use of capability analysis. The method is built upon the ISO 42010 standard, an extendable base capability viewpoint, and concepts from method engineering. The method is demonstrated by applying it to the Strategy Map framework by Kaplan and Norton.
