BA Institute - BA101

Business Architecture is a holistic approach, representation and mindset which serves as a bridge between strategy and its successful execution within an organization and facilitates resolution of complex, enterprise problems. It is a powerful way for the business to understand, improve and transform the organization and become more empowered to take control of its own destiny. However, most organizations lack a well-articulated blueprint of their organization. While everyone can see their small piece of the puzzle, no one has visibility into the enterprise as a whole. This constrains the organization’s collective ability to understand and communicate the root causes of critical issues and design holistic Business and IT solutions to address them. It also reduces the speed and effectiveness with which they can react to customer demands, competition and other external forces. To address this lack of enterprise visibility and agility, organizations must be able to visualize and analyze their business through formal Business Architecture.

This course provides an overview of key Business Architecture terminology and concepts as well as its value proposition and various applications to achieve business results.
