Capabilities-Based Planning (CBP) is an analytic methodology that enhances the quality of information available to decision makers by adding structure to the definition of Strategic Intent and by decomposing the Intent into actionable Capabilities. CBP is a mature process and many organizations already have the basic building blocks for successful execution. Most importantly, CBP is a powerful tool for IT organizations because it shifts the discussion with lines of business executives from what systems require replacing to what business capabilities need to be developed.
QRS professionals extended the CBP process to include capability development governance and exploitation, and have named it the Capability Based Value Delivery (CBvd) process.

- G2: Portfolio of Investments – define the strategies that will create the required capabilities that will enable the target state
- G3: Portfolio of Capabilities – build the required capabilities
