|Adopt||Technique or technology proven to work within this enterprise and is well supported|
|Trial||Promising tool or technique that we're experimenting with on one or more projects. Several of our clients include links to projects in the experiment so that readers can delve into more detail|
|Assess||Promising new tool or technique that enterprise architects are evaluating for potential experiments. This includes things under active research|
|Hold||Just as in the Thoughtworks Radar, hold doesn't mean "abandon immediately" but rather "don't start new projects using this". Hold indicates that the enterprise has deprecated this tool or technique, and offers better alternatives|
