Integrated Value Model (IVM)

What is the Integrated Value Model (IVM)?

The IVM identifies value chains connected by policy products, and depicts the entire organization as an integrated network. Because the IVM is a relational database, it can identify long value chains across products (e.g., laws to directives to initiatives to priorities to agendas).

What does the IVM do?

The IVM frames strategic communication between any two stakeholders in the context of their relatedness. This helps innovators adjust initiatives and policy for change management and coordinated implementation.

Because the IVM depicts policy products as nodes of an information network, that network can be depicted as a network diagram.
