The Coach view is a specific view available in ArchiMate® models, and can be used for defining cyclic and sequential methods for modeling. It can be customized in different ways to make it fit your way of working.

In the Coach view, the different phases of a process can be defined, each phase with links to the views and viewpoints relevant for that phase. If needed, explanatory texts and thumbnails of views can be added. This makes the Coach view a central point for working on and accessing all steps in the process of your modeling method.

It all starts with creating and configuring your Coach view, and once it is ready (and in regular mode) you can start using it in Enterprise Studio. The interactivity of the Coach view is also available when it is used in Horizzon sites.
