Practice: Establish The Foundation

In Step 4, the minimum baseline business architecture is developed for the scope of the entire organization and its ecosystem. This includes a capability map based on defined business information concepts, a set of key-value streams and a value stream/capability cross-mapping.

In Step 7, the initial business architecture team is formally established and key aspects of practice infrastructure are put into place such as a charter, engagement model and practice advancement roadmap.
