Understand EA Stakeholders And Their Needs
July 22, 2016
Why Read This Report
Today's enterprise architecture (EA) organizations are engaging more with the front end of the business: sales, marketing, and product management. Understanding their needs and goals is challenging, but it's critical to EA's impact. Successful EA leaders apply a framework for capturing "useful" goals through structured and relevant conversations. The business capability map is a central tool for engaging with stakeholders. Success in this effort will lead to business improvement road maps that clearly align to the strategic needs of the firm — whether the firm truly thinks strategically or not. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and revises it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy. We are now updating it to reflect our current thinking on effective methods for engaging with business stakeholders.
