Business Architecture Current State Assessment: An Overview
Business Architecture is a holistic, strategic view of an organization’s objectives, capabilities, processes, and resources. It provides a clear conceptual blueprint that depicts the organization’s structure and aligns strategic objectives with tactical demands. It represents the foundational understanding of an organization from a business perspective, covering elements like capability, value delivery, information, and organizational structure.
Why is Assessment of the Current State Business Architecture Assessment Critical?
Assessing the current state of the business architecture is crucial because it establishes a baseline from which improvements can be measured. It provides valuable insights into what works well and what areas need enhancement. This assessment identifies potential gaps, redundancies, and inefficiencies which hamper the organization’s strategic goals. It also helps to ensure that the organization’s architecture remains aligned with its changing business needs and market dynamics.
How to Conduct a Multi-Dimensional Assessment?
A multi-dimensional assessment involves evaluating the business architecture practice across various dimensions, such as leadership support, awareness, and adoption, integration with strategy execution, methodology, and frameworks, collaboration with other architectural domains, team composition and competence, and so on.
This comprehensive evaluation is achieved by posing targeted questions for each dimension and scoring responses to measure the practice’s current state quantitatively. The key here is to gather responses from different levels and functional areas within the organization to ensure a diverse and holistic perspective.
How to Use the Findings to Transform the Business Architecture Practice for the Future?
The findings from the multi-dimensional assessment provide a wealth of information that can be used to improve and transform the business architecture practice. They can identify areas of strength to build upon, highlight areas of weakness that need immediate attention, and provide insights into opportunities and threats in the business environment.
By analyzing the findings, organizations can develop a detailed action plan to address identified issues, align the business architecture more closely with business needs and market dynamics, and drive continuous improvement. This transformation enhances the business architecture practice and contributes to achieving the organization’s strategic goals and maintaining a competitive edge in the marketplace.

Can I see a Sample Deliverable?
We are sorry, but we cannot send or show sample deliverables. There are two reasons: A) The deliverables are our intellectual property, and we cannot share the same. B) While you may be a genuine buyer, our experience in the past has not been great with too many browsers and not many buyers. We believe the depth of the information in the product description and the snippets we provide are sufficient to understand the scope and quality of our products.
When can I access my deliverables?
We process each transaction manually and hence, processing a deliverable may take anywhere from a few minutes to up to a day. The reason is to ensure appropriate licensing and also validating the deliverables.
Where can I access my deliverables?
Your best bet is to log in to the portal and download the products from the included links. The links do not expire.
Are there any restrictions on Downloads?
Yes. You can only download the products three times. We believe that is sufficient for any genuine usage situation. Of course, once you download, you can save electronic copies to your computer or a cloud drive.
Can I share or sell the deliverables with anyone?
You can share the deliverables within a company for proper use. You cannot share the deliverables outside your company. Selling or giving away free is prohibited, as well.
Can we talk to you on the phone?
Not generally. Compared to our professional services fee, the price of our products is a fraction of what we charge for custom work. Hence, our business model does not support pre-sales support.
Do you offer orientation or support to understand and use your deliverables?
Yes, for a separate fee. You can hire our consultants for remote help and in some cases for onsite assistance. Please Contact Us.
