Description

Details

This webinar will show you how the validation and implementation of your business strategy can be supported by a combination of strategy modeling, capability-based planning, and enterprise architecture and portfolio management.

Strategy modeling enables the formalization and focus of the business strategy towards goals. Furthermore, it enables traceable steps in the entire trajectory of strategy execution.

Capability-based planning is centered on realizing strategic goals by focusing on what an organization can do, rather than how. With this, business leaders can plan organizational change based on business outcomes, rather than projects, processes, and applications.

Creating and improving capabilities is supported by enterprise architecture as the backbone of organizational design. It provides a clear line-of-sight between strategic goals, operational services, processes, and systems, and the project and programs that realize them. This enables you to manage the various dependencies and risks involved in realizing your strategy, ensuring coherence across the enterprise.

Enterprise portfolio management supports prioritization and decision-making on the requisite assets and change initiatives that realize the envisaged architecture and capabilities. Relating data from financial and other systems to your architecture and portfolios,provides a solid basis for analysis and decision-making.

We will show how this entire trajectory of strategy execution is facilitated by an integrated solution for describing your strategy, capabilities, enterprise architecture, and portfolios. Enterprise architecture models ensure consistency and facilitate planning. Decision-makers are supported by various customizable dashboards that visualize costs, risks, and business value at different levels, using architectural models to provide linkage to the organization’s strategic goals.

Key takeaways:

  • Learn how to formalize your business strategy through models, traceable downwards to execution.
  • Learn how capability-based planning bridges the gap between strategy and execution, by linking strategic goals to capabilities and your enterprise architecture.
  • Use your enterprise architecture as a foundation for execution, by relating organizational drivers and goals to your asset and project portfolios, thus ensuring alignment between strategy and implementation in a consistent and flexible way.
  • See how you can use architectural and operational data to assess your portfolios, with a powerful solution that supports managers in making informed investment decisions using customizable dashboards.
