A Strategy cycle allows an Organization, to coordinate strategic issues and budget on regular basis. The Strategy cycle provides a framework for this recurrent and joint work. It supports Units to operate autonome within the Common Strategic Framework. The Strategy cycle is a multiple of the Stage cycle for Units, and is constructed in the same fashion.
On the Strategic level strategic themes are addrssed as top level requirements or objectives (purple in the drawing). In the Stages the tactical requirements (features) are broken down towards Tactical Product Backlogs (blue).
Features are further broken down in operational requirements for and implemented in Sprints (green).
