Why Business Architecture Course for Decision Makers?
CEOs are investing a great deal in creating winning strategies. Globally, organizations are working on offsetting economic dampening behavior 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.
Ideally speaking Business Architecture should have been used for engineering or re-engineering of an enterprise. Unfortunately, it's not so.
Building Blocks for Business Execution
What is Business Architecture?
- Like civil architecture, Business Architecture is about creating blueprints for large and complex systems (enterprises) necessary for construction and implementation.
- Similar to medical practice, Business Architecture can help in correcting enterprise disorders based on effective diagnosis based on enterprise x-ray techniques and multi solution approach.
Industry demand for Enterprise Doctors
Our new program is specially designed for business executives. The idea is inspired by medical practice, wherein a medical doctor, who understands the human anatomy, uses the symptoms (narrated by a patient) to understand the problem and narrow it down to specific organ/organs, then applies x-ray techniques to get the necessary insight and uses the x-ray for diagnosis before arriving at possible solution options. Interestingly, this methodology of problem-solving had been a great success in the medical practice that has succeeded in handling human body disorders in a timely manner resulting in longevity of human beings.
This workshop will address how to manage enterprise "disorders." (aka business problems) using Business Architecture. The key is to understand "enterprise anatomy" (building blocks) and interaction between them. Similar to medical practice, there are two important aspects to consider, one is the understanding of "enterprise anatomy" and second is ability to create “enterprise x-rays". An enterprise doctor should be able to use the methodology to isolate and treat enterprise disorders in timely manner. We have seen the applicability across wide range of problems across several business verticals and company of various sizes.
This workshop will also provide an excellent opportunity to understand how to use Business Architecture (BA) to realize business goals. We will co-relate the patterns of problem & solutions of various industries. You will gain significant insight to applying Business Architecture for addressing business problems such as time to market, business transformation, new product/service release, etc. Can we use Business Architecture for managing risk & innovation during the turbulent time?
The key focus areas include understanding Business Architecture i.e. functional structure of an enterprise in terms of its business services, business information, business timing cycles, business locations and business stakeholders for achieving business goals. You will also learn how to create Business Architecture models that in turn will provide the necessary insight to the structure of business for managing and running it. In addition, it provides the capability to assemble and create new business models quickly to meet changing internal or external demands.
With carefully chosen case studies and hands on practice sessions, business managers can learn how to address business problems using above technique. In addition, you will also learn how one can manage multiple disorders at the same time. What makes this methodology effective is the ability to manage the whole thing in a 45 days cycle i.e. lean and timeliness.
It will be interesting to share how we could apply Business Architecture for various business initiatives:more
