Enterprise Doctors for Enterprise Disorders

The iCMG Business Architecture Certification (iCBA) Program’s goal is to evaluate skills and experiences necessary to practice business architecture successfully in your organization by creating, evaluating and executing business strategies that get results.

The iCBA treats Business Architecture delivery similar to how a doctor provides medical services to patients: treating or avoiding serious organizational disorders through proper diagnosis and treatment using its Enterprise Ontology. This will help in applying engineering principles to the organization’s specific needs versus trying to apply a set of generic best practices. Perhaps that is why only 10% of organizations are successful in the industry. Our goal at iCMG is to raise the percentage of successful strategies to well beyond 80% by training and certifying committed professionals throughout the world. Will you be one of them?

Level 2: iCMG Certified Business Architects (iCBA) – Practitioner
Level 3: iCMG Certified Business Architects (iCBA) - Specialist
