Business Architecture

Alignment of Vision, Strategy, and Execution

Business Architects create alignment among leadership to ensure that the right investments in people, processes and technology are made to ensure that strategic objectives are achieved. This discipline provides a holistic view of the business and defines clear linkages between the business vision, strategy, and strategy execution. These linkages help senior management to:

  • Define a differentiated customer experience
  • Identify the critical capabilities needed to execute the strategy
  • Build an investment roadmap that delivers Business Transformation
  • Determine an operating model that will work today and tomorrow
  • Create an adaptive organizational structure

We offer several distinct learning tracks to become an effective Business Architect, based on real-world company work and best practices that drive success.
