In essence, an objective may be of the following types: —obsolete; because the business and its environment have changed or the activities created to satisfy the objective no longer produce significant results —new; because the environment has demanded new objectives to correct any drift towards mediocrity or to ensure the leadership position is kept —current; because the objective still exists within the environment and effective results are being produced.

In fact, the method of top-down decomposition is a good way to drive or lead the conversation in an interview or meeting. At this stage all the analyst is doing is trying to slot the activities, which will probably have appeared in a random order during the interview, into some sort of order.
