RADIX Framework™ is the name for the underlying system for describing all Core Practices. Core Practices are organised into sets, or Groups, according to their target user group. For example, the first Group of Core Practices is Core Practice for Small Business. We hope other user groups will contribute their own Group of Core Practices.
The definition of any Group of Core Practices should be based on the RADIX Framework.
RADIX Framework™ provides:
• This specification document
• A maturity model
• A template for process models
• A spreadsheet format for defining a Group’s processes and practices
• A data model, or definitions of the types of things and how they relate
• A taxonomy, or naming system
• A data dictionary, or list of names
• A list of references
• A list of contributors and their credits
• A list of documents that describe Core Practice
• A system of questions and assessment questionnaires created from them

Note that a CP Group will have its own names, references, contributors, documents and questions, but they should be stored in the central RADIX system so everyone can see them, and sometimes share them.
Processes and Practices are named in the data dictionary, but are defined and described in a separate Model for each Group.
RADIX is currently spreadsheet-based. The Group Model is stored in its own spreadsheet. The spreadsheet can be based on the attached template.
(N.B. while being strong proponents of the open-source model, we have used MS-Excel because we know it and we make heavy use of VB scripting. If we can ever find the time to get over the learning curve, we will switch to Open Office. In the meantime, we make no apologies for opting for the pragmatic solution).
