Organisations are fraught with myriad forms of disruption. Discrepancies in organisational language hinder response to change, giving rise to multiple inefficiencies and misunderstandings. Along with the added complexities arising from aligning technology with business needs, these issues undermine the organisation’s purpose. Layered Enterprise Architecture Development (LEAD) includes a periodic table of 91 meta-objects, semantic relations, and the resulting metamodel. LEAD thus provides an enterprise ontology for overcoming the issues and moves forward with the a) standardisation of language, and b) alignment of business and technology. Mathematical validity is added to the LEAD metamodel, as demonstrated by a novel algorithm applied to a case study. The algorithm leverages CG-FCA (Conceptual Graphs and Formal Concept Analysis), which can be brought to bear on any triple structure. LEAD’s characteristic layering is fully retained, with its lucid identification of organisational change levers.
