Managing Business Transformation

Just putting together the material for my new workshop next week.

This is the third day of my Business Architecture series. The first two days cover the six business architecture viewpoints. The idea is that people can tale these separately or together.

Day One - Modelling Business Operations 
Exploring process quality issues using the Activity Viewpoint, Knowledge (Information) Viewpoint and Motivation (Purpose) Viewpoint.

Day Two – Modelling Business Organization 
Exploring business relationships and strategy, using the Capability Viewpoint, Responsibility (Organizational) Viewpoint and Cybernetic Viewpoint.

Day Three – Managing Business Transformation 
Process guidelines and roadmap for business architects to analyse and manage structural change in large complex organizations.


Here are some of the questions we shall be addressing on Day Three.

  • Why does my organization need business architecture? 
  • What kind of business problems and risks can business architecture address?
  • What outcomes should business architects deliver?
  • What architectural process should business architects follow?
  • What tools and techniques can business architects deploy?
  • How should business architecture activity be managed?
