Establishing and Maturing a Business Architecture Practice

You are here

Create a business architecture practice you can socialize and scale.

Business architecture is a game-changing discipline that enables businesses to address major challenges in new and unique ways. As a result, many organizations are formally establishing the practice and role internally. A robust value proposition, team setup, governance, engagement model, and plan for growth are essential for a successful business architecture practice that can scale.

In this one-day interactive workshop, Cutter Senior Consultant Whynde Kuehn educates attendees on how to establish and mature all aspects of your business architecture practice, such as defining value proposition and measuring value, creating a roadmap for the practice, defining governance, selecting tools and defining organizational structures. She also covers critical success factors and common challenges. At the end of this workshop, attendees will have learned a practical step-by-step approach to building, socializing and scaling a business architecture practice, using templates and techniques that can be applied to jumpstart your own organization's practices.
