Making Architecture Business Value Driven - Dave Guevara
The Denver IASA June 2008 meeting looked at the Business of Architecture. This discussion will look at one part of the broad topic, the business and strategic alignment processes that align IT to be business value driven.
The alignment that we will focus on is between the strategic intent of a company, and the capabilities that are needed to implement the business processes and technologies that will execute that strategic intent. A case study example will be used to illustrate some of the “how to” methods for doing this in your organization. This session will be interactive.
In addition to discussion these new concepts relating strategic intent to capabilities (Business, Organizational, Technical, Integration) we will also take a brief look at getting from capabilities down to User Story inventories and ultimately into services development. Recent feedback from the Agile conference was that these concepts and their use were spot on to where the thought leadership is moving to in the Agile field.
