Our business architecture courses are aligned with the BIZBOK® Guide (A Guide to the Business Architecture Body of Knowledge®), which we incorporate into a comprehensive view on the topic area. This is based on a conceptual framework that distinguishes between three chunks of business architecture content: business motivation, business model, and business execution (which we refer to as the “Business Architecture Triangle”). It was created by our founder Daniel during his Ph.D. work that he finished in 2013. With several publications and talks on business architecture, Daniel has been aiming to live up to the role of a pioneer and thought leader in the field for about ten years.
Our master class provides a comprehensive look into business architecture concepts, framed by three fundamental domains: business motivation, business model, and business execution. Along the way you take a deep dive into business architecture mapping, incl., e.g., value stream, capability, information, and organization mapping. The course also addresses approaches to business architecture analysis and planning and offers guidance as to business architecture practice development.

BA Mapping Expert
Our “BA Mapping Expert” course is designated for business architecture practitioners with prior experiences in developing business architecture blueprints across the domains of the BIZBOK® Guide. It deals with certain challenges and questions that may arise in practice, particularly as to value stream and capability mapping, and ties these back to the mapping principles and guidelines in the BIZBOK® Guide. It thus provides advanced mapping guidance and allows increasing one‘s proficiency in business architecture mapping.
Advanced guidance on …
- … constructing value stream and capability maps
- … using value streams, capabilities, and other selected BA concepts
- … crafting and employing different kinds of cross-mappings
Our “BA Storytelling” course (a variation of our general “Architecture Storytelling” course) focuses on the use of stories to engage with business architecture stakeholders in an effective way, particularly as to articulating a BA practice‘s value proposition and explaining the benefits and usage of specific BA blueprints. Story crafting in the course builds upon the business architecture practice guidance, the business architecture scenarios, and the mapping benefits and principles as described in the BIZBOK® Guide.
