Business Process Architecture: The Eye of the Hurricane

It is clear that incredible turmoil and change will continue to spin faster and faster around today’s enterprises, leaving more and more destruction in its wake for those that are unprepared. Those that anticipate and can accommodate this reality will not only avoid devastation but will realize advantage.

For those parts of the organization that must deal with rapidly shrinking product and service lifecycles, new information requirements, growing governance pressures, massive IT replacement, new business rules, competitive threats, a fickle marketplace, inaccessible knowledge and obsolete human competencies, any rock to hang onto is welcome. The best hope for some stability can be found in a well formed set of processes, architected for adaptability and designed to promote calm and consistency so that all other enterprise capabilities around them can remain relevant and in synch.

This session will show how to build such a Business Process Architecture and how to maintain alignment of all other enterprise capabilities and ensure a more anticipatory, responsive and stable core.

  • The unwavering pressure for change
  • Stable and dynamic: not an oxymoron
  • Building a Robust Process Architecture
  • Aligning Enterprise Capabilities
  • A Multi-dimensional BPM Maturity Model
