The model describes the ecosystem in six domains: Support, Financial, Markets, Human Capital, Policy and Culture. Each domain is described in multiple dimensions.
There are multiple phases of the project. The first phase is schedule to be concluded by mid-year 2017. Subsequent phases are not currently scheduled.
