This course offers practical lessons on how forward-thinking organizations are enabling end-to-end strategic planning through execution using Business Architecture. Topics include business model development, impact analysis, solution design, and includes how Business Architecture is being incorporated to enable other very important practices. Participants will explore areas such as strategy and execution with effective planning in the context of capabilities and functions, as well as taking a look at roadmaps, communication plans and the importance of stakeholder management, and cultural awareness in these initiatives. The course builds on the business architecture methods taught in our popular Practical Application of Business Architecture course, diving deeper into the transformational change initiative.
Corporations are investing like never-before in the digital transformation of their organization. Yet more often than not, they do not have much or enough to show for it. IT-driven agile teams tend to work in silo from the rest of their colleagues and too often they do not deliver according to the business strategies and objectives of their company.
Business Architecture’s critical role in enabling a transformational change is becoming increasingly recognized within organizations as well as the business and academic communities. Business Architecture must be used early on at the planning stages of a business transformational change first to minimize the time that can be wasted between business stakeholders and business analysts while gathering information, second to lower significantly the number of transformation failures before the delivery of solutions that really meet the business strategies and objectives of the enterprise, and finally to make sure that teams from different programs/projects do not deliver conflicting or partly redundant solutions.
