    Master Class Business Architecture: The Foundation for an Agile Program of Business Change @ Berlin
    Jun 8 – Jun 10 all-day

    Overview

    Those organizations that truly understand their business needs and have a good knowledge of how to best leverage their scarce business resources have great advantage in the marketplace. Those that truly understand the internal responses needed for a changing business environment can be innovative and manage the challenge of change better than others. There is no doubt that a solid architecture connecting strategic intent, business processes, capabilities and enabling technology and human resources is needed to become more modern and ensure that all business resources are aligned towards a common goal. To do this, we need to architect and align our intellectual and physical assets and shared capabilities using Business Processes and Business capabilities as the glue in tracing all work and resources to enterprise objectives. A practical, shareable and implementable Business Architecture and Business Change Portfolio will ensure we choose the right transformation initiatives and optimize them. Using architecture models will help us to realize our business intent and define what’s needed to become adaptable as well as to prescribe the required organizational and human change management plans. This highly participative workshop will delve into all aspects of Business Architecture, Business Processes, Business Capabilities and Group Culture from top to bottom.

    Building Alignment for Rapid Change – London @ etc.venues London
    Oct 17 – Oct 19 all-day

    Overview
    There is incredible pressure on organizations to be able to fundamentally change and to sustain their ways of working. Issues such as globalization, massive cost reductions, new forms of competition, social changes, technology breakthroughs and many others are leaving organizations in a race to adapt fast. Evidence has shown that those organizations that have a good knowledge of all of their current business resources and how they interact with one another can handle the challenge better than the others. The ones who cannot move fast enough are often those that do not have an aligned knowledge base of capabilities because they previously built isolated business solutions that ignored sound architectural principles and created solutions from scratch with huge amounts of redundancy and significant integrity issues. All of this just gets worse over time.
