Business Architecture and Process Management - December 15
Join us for our December IIBA Seattle chapter meeting, in the cloud! We are very excited to have Roger Burlton as guest speaker. Roger will discuss ways to leverage business architecture, business analysis, and business process management as three pillars of effective organization, with an emphasis on assuring an Agile business that can adapt to change.
Just as the IIBA Business Analysis framework shows that the practice can be focused on building requirements (BABOK Ch. 7) or managing business analysis information (BABOK Ch. 5), or both, so are organizations using this more mature framework in business architecture.
• Business architecture’s need a strong business process core. This makes it practical and valuable to external stakeholders.
• The business architecture practice is part of what the business analysis practice and practitioner must include as part their skillset if they wish to advance in their practice and careers.
• As many organizations are demonstrating, there isn’t a one size fits all approach to business analysis or business architecture. Ask Google. Ask Proctor & Gamble.
• Business architecture is a evolutionary, never ending discovery process that itself works well, if not better, when it learns and is agile.
Agile development is not just the dev team. Everyone is part of agile development, and it works vastly better when business architecture and a business process baseline form part of an engagement that solves external stakeholder and strategy issues.
