There are many activities and methods addressing business (project and strategic) planning and execution, however the planning cycle still remains flawed and sub-optimal.
-46% of business failures stem from misguided strategies
-More than half of all business projects are still failing
- One third of firms fail to achieve expected results from annual strategic plans
Leading organisations are getting in front of the planning cycle to positively influence project delivery and positive business outcomes with modern approaches geared to rapidly changing and complex environments.
Many disciplines purport to be the silver bullet to deal with these issues. The reality is that most businesses are just too chaotic to handle overly robust and formal techniques – but still want to ensure the right strategies and outcomes are achieved - and by design - not chance.History may look back at the evolving discipline of modern Business Architecture as one of the keys. For that to come true though, Business Architecture, as any methodology and framework, needs to be applied in a pragmatic and lean manner to be an effective tool for today's businesses.
This presentation, given by EA's Chief Architect, looks at Business Architecture and its journey – and necessity – to support a more agile approach to enterprise design.
