The Enterprise Business Motivation Model (EBMM) is a conceptual information model that captures the core elements of business strategy, business function, and business motivation.  When properly used, the EBMM provides a mechanism for finding the flaws in the design of a business and for correcting those flaws.  The EBMM is most frequently used by Enterprise Business Architects and Strategic Planners to create an understanding of a business to insure alignment and to focus on the business initiatives necessary to insure the fulfillment of strategic goals.
