Once the value of Business Architecture is demonstrated within an organization, the next step is to set up governance and a Center of Excellence to formally establish the practice and the Business Architect role within the organization.  This course provides the roadmap for creating a successful Business Architecture practice.  It is beneficial for anyone who is just starting to establish a Business Architecture practice within their organization or for those who are already on the journey.

This course describes how to socialize Business Architecture within an organization as well as how to build and mature the key components of a Business Architecture practice.  These components include Business Architecture value proposition definition, practice planning, Business Architect role and organizational structure definition, architecture governance process definition, tool selection and other topics necessary to establish a practice.  This course also describes how to measure the value of a Business Architecture practice and integrate it with related disciplines within an organization, including other Centers of Excellence.  A Business Architecture practice maturity model provides the framework for this course, along with a maturity-based approach that can be used to plan and mature a practice on an ongoing basis.  Finally, this course identifies critical success factors and provides guidance on how to navigate through the various challenges that are typically encountered along the way.
