A Design-Led Approach to Business Architecture

Published on

Too often in a classic decision-centric management setting, "Business Requirements" as the basis for all further endeavours seem to just magically appear out of nothing and remain unquestioned, instead of being part of a larger vision and purposeful design of the business. One possible way to address this issue is using Design Thinking to generate a tangible vision.
This presentation showcases a design-led approach to business architecture. By looking at the business from a customer experience perspective, such a design captures a desired future state that in turn can be used to derive and model business processes, capabilities, decision rules and other architectural elements.
