Every sector today is being led by the wealthiest technology business leaders in history because those leaders embraced technology as a strategic capability. Eighty percent of executives believe “their business models are under attack” according to McKinsey Research. Leading organizations need business architects to build better business solutions. Organizations who plan to survive rapid technology, cultural changes, cyber security threats, artificial intelligence, and demands for more business agility must find skilled business architects who guide, analyze, recommend, communicate, and guide high risk transformations. Are you a strategic business analyst who wishes to grow your career?
What is the role of a Business Architect?
A business architect provides leadership with strategic alignment of outcomes by defining why, who, what, when, where, and how to improve governance, capability, information, and process gaps. A business architect leverages people skills and business modeling techniques to deliver effective “to be” operating models and roadmaps. A business architect works to develop an integrated view of the enterprise using a shared knowledge management framework to ensure transformations, initiatives, and projects align with the strategic business vision.
The Business Architecture Guild is a community of business architects who have come together to build and expand their profession. The Guild is an international, diverse community of business architecture practitioners, beneficiaries and interested parties. We are a collaborative collective where individuals can learn with and from their peers, explore and develop new ideas, and further the practice and discipline of business architecture.
A Guide to the Business Architecture Body of Knowledge™ (BIZBOK® Guide) is the primary resource for our profession. The Guild builds out new and existing content for the Guide through an agile, collaborative process. In fact, there are over 100 authors of the most recent edition. Generally, two editions are produced each year. We offer a downloadable, printable, password protected PDF to our membership. We ask member practitioners to provide feedback on each release.
