We Serve Business Architecture Practice Directors and Teams
We help you establish and mature your business architecture practice, to serve as a foundation for successful strategy execution. This is an area of passion for us and we have a strong track record of creating successful teams that have become embedded into their organizations. Using our established methodology, we can assist you with any of the key areas: establishing a case for business architecture, building the business architecture knowledgebase, applying business architecture for value, maturing the business architecture practice and supporting the business architecture practitioners.
Our Business Architecture Practice Offerings
A maturity assessment for existing practices or a readiness assessment for new practices. This comprehensive assessment provides an objective third party perspective on your practice’s progress, value and opportunities.
A combination of education, business case development, and practice planning that leaves you with an executable roadmap and a jump start on key deliverables. May be combined with the Practice Assessment for new practices.
A flexible consulting arrangement to guide and/or help you create any aspect of your business architecture practice from blueprint development to role and team structure definition to integration with other parts of the organization.
The creation of a “case for business architecture” customized to your organization’s unique challenges, opportunities, positioning and dynamics. Also includes presenting briefings and performing other activities as needed to help you socialize and build advocacy for business architecture.
An assessment of any existing business architecture blueprints and knowledgebase content you have created for alignment to industry standards and best practices. May include assessment of any types of blueprints such as capability maps, value streams and information maps, as well as knowledgebase scope, structure and relationships. This assessment provides an objective third party perspective on the industry alignment, usability and scalability of your business architecture knowledgebase as well as recommendations for improvement. Applies whether you are just getting started or have a robust knowledgebase already in place.
A short series of workshops and coaching to help you quickly get one or more of your baseline business architecture blueprints in place, such as a capability map and/or value streams, and learn the tricks of the trade in the process.
Hands-on assistance with an engagement to put business architecture in practice. See our Strategy Execution offerings for a few examples. We can lead the engagement or work alongside you, providing an ideal way for you to learn how to do business architecture from an expert and help you get a win, or just supplement the capacity on your team.
A flexible arrangement where we are “on call” to provide guidance, review, research or education on all things business architecture to your team, executive leaders or any other business or IT teams with whom you partner.
An end-to-end business architecture training curriculum for business architecture practitioners that covers how to establish a case for business architecture, build out the business architecture knowledgebase, apply business architecture for value, and mature the business architecture practice over time. We also provide brief courses on business architecture for executives and other key roles (e.g. planners, business analysts). Both corporate and public training course options are available.
