I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
I'm only responsible for what I say not for what you understand.

The Evolving Role Of Business Architecture | Forrester Blogs | I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you. | Scoop.it

Business architecture has become a bit of a watchword for organizations thinking about their future. It’s about all sorts of things – the “what” we do and “why” we do it. It’s about the “who with”, or more importantly “who for.” But it’s also about the “how we do it”, and “how we build engagement” to ensure we “do the right things,” rather than just “doing things right.”

Given that I focus on the methods and techniques that help organizations translate strategy into action (business architecture, process architecture, business engagement, etc.), I want to talk a little about the trends, methods and approaches that we see in the practice of business architecture.

When my colleagues and I review the capability maps and approaches of our clients, we find challenged common thread:  Business architects often struggle to get the levels of engagement they need in the business; to be taken seriously and not be seen as some purveyors of some sort of geeky IT method.

As Brian Hopkins put it – they suffer the common IT problem of “doing it to the business” not “with the business.” Gordon Barnett and I are concerned that as much as 75% of the clients we’ve met had a fear of going to the business to discuss issues – they didn’t see that co-developing capability maps could really help them in engaging their colleagues. They were creating capability maps and present them, often without any real business context. It’s not that business folks don’t see the value in capability maps; it’s that to be relevant, business capability maps have to help solve a problem (that they care about).  The two key takeaways:

As some of you know, I'm a bit of a political junkie. I believe I picked up the political bug from years of riding shotgun with my dad as he listened to Rush Limbaugh blaring on the car radio.
