BIMe Initiative's mission will be achieved by demonstrating new ways of thinking, researching, learning and collaborating.
BIMe Initiative mission and vision are expressed as three complementary goals:
Goal 1: Help practitioners to improve their digital competence.
Goal 2: Assist organisations to adopt, adapt, and innovate practical digital solutions internally and on collaborative projects.
Goal 3: Support policy makers in improving the digital transformation strategies for a country or region.
Note: each goal is subdivided into measurable objectives (defined per project). Projects may address more than one goal.
The BIMe Initiative will fulfil its goals by delivering open-access resources for all to freely use (refer to respective licenses). Targeted deliverables can be end-products for practical use (e.g. a web tool or a template) or conceptual components needed to build end-products.
The BIMe Initiative's targeted deliverables are achieved through interconnected projects subdivided into self-organising microprojects and workpackages.
The BIMe Initiative deploys a mixture of methodologies and methods to reach its goals. These include knowledge engineering, systems thinking, and semantic structuring methods - all supported by published peer-reviewed frameworks.
All BIMe Initiative activities and outcomes are guided by a set of General Principles that community volunteers agree to upon joining. Agreement to these General Principles is signalled by signing the Excellence Manifesto.
