Tools to assist the #BusinessArchitect

Business Architects handle a significant role in any #enterprise. They are charged with fashioning a coherent #architecture and a plan so that they can realise the organisation's vision. While frameworks like #TOGAF might present a roadmap, it does not teach you how to drive. Which is why it helps if you can learn more about leading techniques and ways to present models and results of analyses.

This is where a course like the one we just ran two weeks ago really works. The course, held in Kuala Lumpur, was Business #Architecture : Techniques and Deliverables. It is skills focused rather than methodology focused and helps the business architect understand context, challenges, opportunities, risk and strategic options. Run over five days, it is intense but delivers what's needed. For more info, take a look at the programme details and the testimonials in the course page below. These were the happy participants at the course earlier this month. Graham McLeod did an amazing job delivering this programme, he's pictured at the extreme left.

How should you manage test delivery within large complex programmes?

Was privileged to get some valuable feedback recently from someone who has built a solid reputation in this space - Ivan Grice. Former Head of the testing practice at KPMG Sydney some years back, he built the test strategy and test team for a $45M wealth management migration program at that time. Prior to that, Ivan successfully delivered full-service testing for the first phase of a $90M bank telling system replacement project as the Test Director at Westpac Bank Australia. Currently, the Test Director at HSBC Hong Kong, Ivan shares detailed ideas about to manage test delivery within the context of large programmes.
