Enterprise Design, Business Architecture & other Enterprise Architecture domains are the key to successful Business Agility, Transformation and Viability.
Business awareness through business architecture and design has always been important for business viability, agility, resilience, operation and success. However, businesses actually do little or in many cases nothing related to business design.
The new world of business has to go beyond a vision, mission and successfully executing a business model. VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) is everywhere and impacting businesses in ways we have never imagined. The new world of business has to be aware of and use a large variety of methods to successfully move forward in a VUCA world:
- Current and future internal and external influences
- Higher purpose, values, principles, and culture
- Vision, mission, strategy, and tactics and the dynamic capabilities required to define and make real
- Materiality Maps (what’s important to enterprise integrated stakeholders)
- Current and target state business models and value propositions
- Business idea testing
- Integrated Stakeholder Models
- Integrated Value Model
- Value Chain Maps
- Governance Models
- Measurement Models / Scorecards
- People (Human Capital) Model
- Organization Models and Location Footprints
- Supplier Matrix Model
- Concept / Semantic Models (the vocabularies of the enterprise)
- Resource Models
- Current and target state operating models
- Capability Models
- Customer Journey Maps, Service Blueprints
- Business Process Models
- Business Rule Models
The Enterprise Design & Transformation web-site can be found at http://www.designandtransformation.com. It will be a community of practice for enterprise design in support of positive enterprise transformation.
You may be asking, how does this fit in with everything else I do. Business can make the biggest impact on flourishing and improved well-being for individuals, teams, the enterprise, communities, regions, provinces/states, nations, society and the planet. Because of this businesses need to become flourishing enterprises. To become a flourishing enterprise businesses must do enterprise design. Any business transformation is a big investment and needs to be de-risked and be completed successfully through proper enterprise design.
