Why Read This Report

The key to a successful business architecture (BA) practice is developing strong business architects. Technology architects can be successful with narrow domain knowledge, but business architects (BAs) must be well rounded with a good mix of technical, business, and interpersonal skills. Business architecture is relatively new as a discipline, and there are very few experienced business architects. Organizations will have to carefully consider the skills they need today and plan on rapidly growing the skills they will need tomorrow. This report provides the foundation to create a BA job description specific to your organization.
