Business Architecture

No business can hope to thrive unless it has a clear understanding of its own business model. In the full sense, this implies a current, accurate and well-accepted definition of a number of factors, including such fundamentals as:

  • The reason for the business to exist;
  • The value propositions they offer, and the customer segments they offer them to;
  • Precisely why the customers buy from them;
  • A clear vision of the near and mid-term future shape of the business;
  • The competitive and financial landscape in which the business operates.

We have developed a structured approach to mentoring organizations through the process of building such an architecture, end-to-end:

  • Understanding the pressures, including digital disruption, which will force change upon the company
  • Developing a case for controlled change to address and exploit these pressures
  • Defining the specific changes necessary to reach the future state
  • Scoping and shaping of programs of work to achieve architectural change
  • Cultural, organisational and technical change management
  • Benefits tracking and realisation
  • Ongoing business architecture driven transformation.
