The distinct and special characteristics business architects worldwide seem to share, which make them particularly well suited for their roles, have long marveled me. However, there is very little data-backed research on the human side of business architecture. Thus, it seemed it was time to bring a bit of science into the mix to help us understand why we view business architects as gifted in certain areas, along with why we see common challenges. So I initiated the global "Business Architect Strengths Study" a first-of-its-kind, to discover and share insights that can help business architects, their executives, and the industry maximize the impact of business architecture. This Executive Update by Cutter Senior Consultant Whynde Kuehn provides a small subset of key research findings and, most important, what these findings mean for most effectively leveraging the unique abilities of business architecture within our organizations.
