Excel Through COVID-19 With a Focused Business Architecture

Now that the panic is over, it’s time to evaluate your business model.

  • Business architecture, including value stream and business capability models, is the tool you need to reposition your organization for post-COVID-19 success.
  • Your business architecture model represents your strategic business components. It guides the development of all other architectures to enable new and improved business function.
  • Evaluating your current business architecture, or indeed rebuilding it, creates a foundation for facilitated discussions and target state alignment between IT and the senior C-suite.
  • New projects and initiatives during COVID-19 must evolve business architecture so that your front-line workers and your customers are supported through the resolution of the pandemic. Specifically, your projects and initiatives must be directly traced to evolving your architecture.
  • Business architecture anchors downstream architectural iterations and initiatives. Measure business capability enablement results directly from projects and initiatives using a business architecture model.
