I'd like to see a use case for a model like this, to help me understand its
potential benefits.

Vassilios, do you have a glossary containing definitions of each of the
elements in plain English?  In part 2 of the Strategy Markup Language
(StratML) standard, we plan to include the following elements that are
contained in your conceptual model:  


In the first release of the standard, our <Stakeholder> element includes
both the Citizen as well as the Service Provider concepts contained in your
model: http://xml.gov/stratml/draft/StratMLCoreGlossary.xml#Stakeholder 

In a future release, we may include an element for <Authority>, which would
include your concept of Law as well as regulation.

While the first page needs to be updated a bit to reflect the current draft
of the first release of StratML, the second page of the following graphic
depicts our preliminary thinking about the elements of the second release,
which will specify the elements of performance plans and reports:
http://xml.gov/stratml/draft/StratMLPerformancePlanCoreFrameworkV3.pdf A
simplified view of what we may call the Value Chain is provided at

Our intent is for the StratML standard to be generic enough to apply not
just to all government agencies but also all organization worldwide,
including commercial enterprises.  However, the use case I have drafted for
consideration by the eGov IG is available at

Hopefully, having a clearer understanding of not only of the <Stakeholders>
but also the required <Inputs> as well as the desired <Outputs> and
<Outcomes> will eventually facilitate more rational consideration of the
distinctions between functions that are inherently governmental in nature
versus those that may more efficiently and effectively be conducted by
commercial/industrial organizations.

Not as an answer to Owen's message, but I'm copying below a message in the
thread that was somewhat missing. It provides a graphic that Vassilios
attached to explain the conceptual model.

It may be doable to apply that model to many other countries if kept at such
an abstract layer, not sure about the benefit though, but interesting in
learning about the experiences.

Said that, I agreed with Vassilios on that:
1) developing the model is out of scope for this Group
2) identifying there's a need for one is within scope
    (if we agree on the need as a Group, of course)

Hence why I encouraged all to have this discussion in the open.
