Our Business Architecture Practice Offerings

Business Architecture Practice Assessment

This comprehensive assessment provides an objective third-party perspective on your practice’s progress, value, and opportunities. Follow on with a Business Architecture Practice Roadmap to make the findings actionable.

Business Architecture Practice Roadmap

An executable roadmap to establish or mature your business architecture practice, in the most value-focused and practical way. May be combined with a Business Architecture Practice Assessment.

Business Architecture Knowledgebase Jumpstart

A perfect combination for organizations who are establishing a new business architecture practice, which includes a combination of education, a readiness assessment, business case development, and practice planning that leaves you with an executable roadmap and a jump start on key deliverables

Business Architecture Practice Consulting

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.

Business Architecture Case Development

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.

Business Architecture Knowledgebase Assessment

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.
