Why Read This
Many architects are initiating their business architecture (BA) programs by developing business capability maps. While the finalized maps themselves are fairly simple, the process to create them isn't. Business capability map development requires detailed planning. Architects building capability maps in isolation quickly run into hurdles as they try to engage the business. Successful business architects are taking a more structured approach to engage stakeholders and build business support by including business players from the beginning of the process. Creating a formalized plan for capability development provides architects with the vehicle they need to secure critical resources and lay the foundation for business support.
