I see a lot of separated efforts in organizations – people run projects, implement systems, restructure the organization, and model processes. Aren’t these all connected activities that should be coordinated to create a *gulp* architecture that carries the load?

But what is a “Business Architecture” and how is it different from just an assembly of processes? Are these terms synonyms or is there more to a Business Architecture than that?

In this episode of the podcast we are talking about:

  • What is a Business Architecture?
  • Why should I care and where to start?
  • Align strategy to (business) architecture
  • Two process views – functional processes vs. End-to-End processes
  • Both process views are connected (big map vs. trip map)
