For Enterprise Architecture Professionals

Let Business Needs Drive Your Enterprise Architecture

    Why Read This Report

    This report outlines the stakeholder needs portion of Forrester's solution for enterprise architecture (EA) professionals building a high-performance EA practice. This report is designed to help you structure your approach when determining how the high-performance EA practice should aid stakeholder strategies. A high-performance EA practice must focus its activities on specific goals with clearly stated business value, drive engagement and collaboration across the enterprise, and achieve its strategic vision by applying guidance to tactical projects. But capturing the right goals and showing their business value is a challenge to do well. EA leaders in high-performance EA practices apply a framework for determining these goals through structured and relevant conversations with their stakeholders. This report describes how to engage stakeholders with the business capability map as the central tool for this effort. Success in this effort will lead to business improvement road maps that enable EA to plan initiatives and strategies that are clearly aligned to the strategic needs of the firm — whether the firm truly thinks strategically or not.
