A hidden source of expensive waste in most organizations can be found in the process for seeking funding for projects. I’ll bet you are thinking, “Seriously?” to yourself right now. That’s the problem. No one really thinks about this process as a costly waste of scarce resources in an organization. And worse yet, very few organizations see the link between good business architecture and eliminating this wasteful loss. In the next several blog posts we’ll bring to light the cost of poorly constructed funding request processes that start well before the presentations are ever given before the approving body.

Getting funding for that project that is near and dear to your heart is generally the least favorite activity of almost all of my clients. You’ve done your research and know in your heart it is the right thing to do and will bring the needed results to your company. But what I hear from my clients is that convincing others, especially those that may not have the passion for technology that you do, can be something like making a trip to the dentist: necessary, but painful.

In my earlier days, I was amazed to see the number of management and strategy frameworks. Even today, it's surprising to find that strategy models continue to be one of the least formal.  Very often available in installments of excel and PPT files, to be used at your own risk. In fact, there is NO version control or baseline for the strategy models.

CEOs are investing a great deal in formulating winning strategies. Unfortunately, outcomes are not a pleasant experience. Globally, organizations are working on offsetting economic dampening behaviour with  new products and services in regular interval.  Very often, results are  not favorable due to inherent business complexity and associated business structure. As a result, even incremental changes are expensive and time-consuming. In absence of "Business Architecture", business strategy is just a mismanaged carnival of descisions that is desperate for revenue. "Business Architecture" is an evolving discipline which empowers decision makers with "Visual Intelligence." Using "Visual Intelligence," business managers can understand anatomy of business...
