The development processes of three companies are analyzed and laid down in three representations. These representations are compared and based on the similarities found in these comparisons a so-called example model of the development process is created. In this example model the knowledge and experience of the three companies is bundled. On the one hand the example model can be used as an initial expectation when charting an as-is situation of a company and on the other hand the model is useful as a resource of ideas when creating a to-be situation for a company. In the paper the format of the representations is shortly explained.
