Lately the notion of capability has emerged in information system engineering as the means to support development of context dependent organizational solutions and supporting IT applications. To this end a Capability Driven Development (CDD) approach has been proposed. As key part of CDD is the concept of patterns that is used to support the capability design from existing solutions as well as the adjustment of the capability delivery at run-time. A pattern template and meta-model is presented together with the CDD lifecycle that incorporates pattern development and use. The initial experiences of use of the patterns as part of CDD at three industrial use cases are also presented.
