Identify Essential Methods For Your Business Architecture Program
September 7, 2012
Why Read This Report
Business architecture (BA) is the practice through which an organization adds analytical rigor to the planning and decision-making surrounding change. Whether changes are driven by competitive pressures, mergers and acquisitions (M&A), operational excellence, customer centricity, risk reduction, technology rationalization, or cost cutting, business architecture efforts help guide change while resolving conflicting objectives. Without a structured approach for translating strategic intent into effective execution, inevitably, the business will waste time and resources as it reinvents approaches and models. With a structured approach, the organization can assess how it approaches and executes organizational change initiatives, improving its abilities over time by adding or subtracting methods and approaches. While there is a wide variety of methods and techniques, this report outlines the core set that an effective business architecture practice needs to develop.
