The emphasis over the years has grown from managing the current value proposition (2001–2004) to designing the future value proposition and its underlying enablers (2005–2008). The focus of the transformation expanded from the core value creation processes of the enterprise to include Enabling Processes such as shared services and Leadership Processes— growing leaders, defining identity, and strategy.
