Lessons

To provide students with the skills and knowledge to perform business architecture within the context of an enterprise architecture.
There is interminable discussion about whether enterprise architecture is really enterprise architecture or enterprise IT architecture. The question hinges on whether business architecture is done or the techniques of business architecture are applied to gain enough understanding for IT alignment.
The rationale for designing business architecture depends on the position, role and expectations of your enterprise architecture team.
This course provides the skills and knowledge to develop a blueprint of an organization in the future, i.e. to design the changes necessary to provide a common understanding of the enterprise in order to align strategic objectives and tactical demands.

Key Learning Objectives

In this course, you will learn how to develop many different views of an organization in order to create an integrated view. The key views of an enterprise within the business architecture are:
  • Business strategy: Encapsulates the strategic goals that drive an organization forward and maps them to metrics for ongoing evaluation of how well the enterprise is achieving its goals.
  • Business capabilities: Describes an organization's customer-facing functions, supplier-related functions, core business execution functions and business management functions.
  • Business information: Establishes the common information, the sources and flows the organization relies on to perform its operations.
  • Business operational: Defines the strategic, core and support operational structures that go beyond functional and organizational boundaries. Also describes the external entities such as customers,, partners & suppliers, that interact with the enterprise.
  • Organizational: Outlines the relationships between roles, capabilities and business units, the breakdown of business units into subunits, and the internal or external management of those units.

To enable participants to build a business architecture foundation to support the achievement of key goals, deliver business value and execute business scenarios, this course will teach you to recognize and evaluate the relationships between the above views.

Prerequisites
An understanding of EA, including governance, stakeholders, targets, alignment and trade-offs. Completion of TOGAF® 9 Certification or EA with TOGAF® and Navigate™ is an asset.

Business Skills courses require multiple students in order to run due to the interactive nature of the training.

It was hard to be in a room alone watching the video screen for two days straight. Would have rather just had it recorded to watch at leisure due to lack of ability to participate - could speak but hard over computer

It was a good experience and learned a lot that I didn't know. The instructor was explaining well and helped us when needed.

It was a good experience, learned a lot about Microsoft word and excel.
I think Esther provided excellent information. She was very positive and patient with us (me).

We had taken Photoshop CS6 Level 1 on Nov 15 so knew essentially what to expect, even though what was initially supposed to be an “in-class instructor” session turned into a remote-instructed session. We got to the Level 2&3 training site ahead of schedule on Nov 17 and were settled in for the 8:00 start time. There were problems with the training immediately. • The instructor – Chris Motherwell in Ontario – was half an hour late logging into the “TrainLive solution.” • When he did log in, he refused to use the CS6 training manual that we had been given. • He had us spend time downloading his CS3 manual and labs, which took an additional 15-20 minutes. • CS3 was released in 2007 and is 5 years older than the CS6 manual version we were supposed to be training on. • There was no way for us to download the CS3 manual for use outside of the training session. • While we were getting set up he had everyone (6 students in 3 locations) open Photoshop and “follow exercise 3.1” of his CS3 manual – use the brush tool to put star shapes on a black background – for 30 minutes. No other instruction was given during this time. • Since we were doing this remotely, there was lag-time with my mouse. This makes it extremely difficult to do any of the fine detail work that Photoshop requires. It’s hard to place your mouse precisely when the cursor doesn’t move at first, then jumps around the screen with a half-second delay. We spoke to the people running Logical Choice several times and they were at a loss to explain what was going on. Their expectation was that we would be taught CS6, and we were provided with that manual. They tried contacting him and Last Minute training to sort things out but were having no luck. At this point we had wasted close to two hours and felt that it would be a long time before anything was fixed. The instructor would not want to change manuals as he wasn’t familiar with the CS6 version. Any training that could now take place would be rushed and we would not get the full benefit of the course. Frustrated and seeing no solution presenting itself, we left. We've had one good, and one very disappointing experience. We are booked to re-take this course at a later time. I hope it will be better with an in-class instructor.

Absolutely ... I have taken many courses from Last Minute Training and have always been very impressed with the vendors they use. Alex Donos was the instructor and was exceptional as an instructor. I would for sure take another course from him as he not only knows his "stuff" but he would continually tell the class to use "critical thinking" when using Excel.

It was good to have the instructor in class with us. Someone was brought in remotely and it was awkward. There were many technical ... Read more

It was good to have the instructor in class with us. Someone was brought in remotely and it was awkward. There were many technical issues which delayed our class. By the end of the day we had to rush to get through the last lessons. Would have been good to spend more time on them.
