Business architecture is being used to design, plan, execute, and govern change initiatives throughout public and private sector entities. An architectural approach can systematically highlight the most effective state for a given environment, and then define how change can be effected within acceptable benefit, cost, and risk parameters. A key challenge to this approach is the consistent definition of the organization and where it needs to be, and in response this White Paper introduces a comprehensive reference model for business. The Business Reference Model (BRM) can be applied to both private and public sector organizations alike, and gives complex organizations a common way to view themselves in order to plan and execute effective transformational change.
It is envisaged that the introduction of a BRM into a transformation planning exercise will increase collaboration across the business, increase awareness of organizational opportunity and risk, and facilitate more holistic business investment; all of which culminates in an improved and more sustainable working environment leading to a better working world.
