A long path to overnight success – 5 keys to accelerating value through business architecture.
As an Information Technology division, a gap existed in our ability to help our business partners view the value of IT investments thru the lens of enabling business objectives and driving towards strategic end states. Our efforts to link technology to business outcomes began two years ago with a workshop and one informally titled business architect. Not recognized as a strategic partner and without top-down support, our efforts stalled. However, with persistence and a new approach, we were able to remove barriers and position IT for success as a strategic partner. We have now grown to a team of five, have invested in an EA tool, gained leadership support and our business partners asking, ‘When can you work with me?” In our session we will share five key learnings to kick-starting your business architecture efforts and accelerate value.
