The seminar introduces a systematic approach for your company’s business process architecture and for modeling and redesigning specific processes within it as well as with the prioritization of capability change. It provides a solid basis for newbies and a great refresher for anyone experienced with processes, from architects, analysts, designers and change practitioners. This session establishes a sound baseline and a common language for all work management innovation and process renewal.

There are four parts to this video:

  • Process, Modeling, Design, and Architecture Overview. This first video in the series introduces basic process and architecture concepts. The importance of knowing and documenting business processes is explained, as well as the importance of identifying the value of each business process and the dependencies among the processes. The business process management (BPM) methodology is introduced as well.
  • Enterprise Level Modeling. This second video in the series covers the data and process artifacts that need to be produced at the enterprise level. Learn about a number of essential deliverables including the business concept model, value chain analysis, and process standards.
  • Process Level Modeling: Understand and Analyze. This third video in the series focuses on “doing the work”. We categorize business value in terms of exchanges, expectations, and experience and then cover process-centric measures in terms of agility, quality, effectiveness, and efficiency. Learn how to create Process Scope Diagrams, also known as IGOEs (Inputs, Guides, Outputs, and Enablers). Practice the basics of the Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) and create a series of process flows.
  • Process Level Modeling: Redesign and Implement. This fourth video in the series covers how to reverse a fishbone diagram to avoid risk, and how to find solution patterns. We discuss how to change business and operating models, and how to assess and test your models through scenario analysis.

A Foundation For All Things Process

The practical approach described in this book can help you as a business architect, analyst, or manager, create reusable, adaptable, and manageable knowledge of your organization. Apply the full lifecycle from business strategy through implementation, and identify the required knowledge domains. Convert business strategy into usable and effective business designs which optimize investment decisions. Articulate what domain knowledge (the dots) needs to be collected, how these are connected, and which combinations provide the greatest opportunity if corrected. The book covers the main business architecture stages of ‘Define the Business’, ‘Design the Business’, ‘Build the Business’, and ‘Operate the Business’. Build models of the external ecosystem, business stakeholders, business information, business processes, business capabilities, change prioritization, and performance management systems to support your change journey.

This book is an essential companion guide for new business architects and analysts, and a valuable reference for experienced architects to enhance their practice.
