Business Architecture: Driving Innovation and Business Growth

Innovative new Companies can explode onto the market at any time, transforming markets, destroying competitors, and claiming valuable blue-ocean space. With a creative, agile and dynamic approach, Business Architecture is an increasingly important discipline for igniting organizational potential and driving game-changing strategies. This results-focused approach to Business Architecture outlines systemically linked performance drivers and enablers that have a powerful, cumulative impact on organizational performance. A core theme of the presentation is the emphasis on agility, innovation and speed, which, in a highly competitive and disruptive global business environment, are increasingly important requirements for performance, business growth and strategic success. The presentation concludes with practical implications for Business Architecture.
