Business Architecture has become mainstream and is the fastest growing area of Enterprise Architecture. The Business Architecture Body of Knowledge (BIZBOK) is now at V4.1, and continues to expand on industry best practices. Starting in 2015, an international certification will be available for individual practitioners to become “Certified Business Architect™” based on the BIZBOK and related business material. Whether you are interested in certification or not, this course will provide an overview of Business Architecture and help participants develop their skills and techniques. For those looking toward certification, it will help you prepare to take the certification exam.

The seminar is structured as a combination of presentation, interactive discussion and group based exercises, so participants get the chance to apply the concepts learned during the facilitated exercises.
