Designed for business architecture practice leaders and business architecture practitioners, this white paper provides a pragmatic perspective on how to establish and mature a business architecture practice. The concept of a business architecture “practice” is simply a way to refer to the intentional collection of activities performed to achieve the defined mission for business architecture within an organization. This includes activities such as defining blueprints, role and team structure, methods and standards, governance processes, and organizational alignment. A business architecture practice is like a “service provider” to an organization and should be positioned accordingly, enabling practitioners to have influence, objectivity and cross-business unit visibility.Original Publish Date: 21 February 2017
