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 the Capability Driven Development (CDD) approach has been proposed. CDD currently focuses on designing and running applications that need to be adjusted according to changes in context, which can be seen as capability support on an operational level. This paper proposes a method component of CDD for strategic capability modeling in order to support business planning. The proposed component is to be used to analyze the organization’s capabilities on a strategic level, including aspects of collaboration with other enterprises. Its application in four companies is outlined and one application of capability design for the industrial symbiosis platform presented in detail.
