Designing the Adaptable Business: A Business Architecture and Business Analysis Framework
Why is it that, no matter what industry you work in, everyone has the same struggles? AND what can you do about it? We all know that people have difficulty with prioritizing requirements across the enterprise, lengthy requirements elicitation, and a lack of contextual understanding of projects within the broad enterprise strategy. All of these result in delays to delivery of business value. At Wellmark Blue Cross Blue Shield, we decided it was time to face these challenges head on.
We needed to start thinking and acting differently so we could build a more adaptable business model. We began separating our business into services, identifying the most critical business capabilities, prioritizing requirements accordingly, using visual modeling techniques, and increasing focus on team-based elicitation.
This is not your normal case study! Not only will we share our approach, successes, and lessons learned; we will provide an opportunity for an advanced, interactive demonstration of our working environment. Are you ready to adapt?
What Attendees Will Learn:
- How to visually represent business capabilities as a means of driving prioritization and team-based requirements elicitation.
- How to broker consensus through collaborative analysis tools in co-located environments.
- How to maximize business value through ongoing traceability of capability delivery to the enterprise strategy.
