Strategic Dialog

The development of the Enterprise Architecture starts with the Strategic Dialog between top and senior management and the Enterprise Architects. Documents that will be discussed to translate the organization’s strategy into the principles, models, and concepts of the Strategic Architecture Domain are often called Strategy Plan, Digital Agenda, etc. It is essential that the Strategic Architecture components can be derived from these documents and the Strategic Dialog. However, if not available, the different components can be build-up in the normal architecture support jobs during the transition projects.

 

Problems and Solutions

Within the contemporary enterprise architecture approach, the strategic dialog is limited to the translation of the strategy in Business Architecture models that do not take into account the Proposition, the Value Creation, and the conceptual levels of Object models, Function models, Capabilities, business Interactions, etc. Within the Enterprise Architects approach the strategic plans form the start of the different models based on several business concepts like Culture Transformation, Competence Management, Service Delivery approach, 3-level Object modeling etc. Beside these models principles start at the Strategic Architecture Domain. In this way every business transformation methodology can be used within Enterprise Architecture 3.0 and the ABODE transformation approach.

 

Tools to support the Strategic Dialog

To support the Strategic Dialog Enterprise Architects offers the following tools:

Several Assessments on Value Creation via surveys and special statics, like
Treacy & Wiersema
Osterwalder
Van Wely
  • etc.
 
  • ASA/Strategy Analysis
 
  • ACM/Core Competence Management
Defining and managing the Core Competences of the organization
