Bridging Strategy to Execution through a Business Capability Model

Presented by: Helen T. McCullough


Transformational business strategy which is formed in the board room has a difficult journey to bridge the wide chasm from idea generation to IT execution. Defining the business strategy in a manner that is implementable and considers the value to the stakeholders is key to realizing the business strategy objective. Today’s business issues are complex – moving the organization to the mobile economy, optimizing the global millennial workforce and customer base, and competing with the new entrants into existing industries – and getting it right the first time is imperative!

Three key concepts of business architecture are explored as solutions to bridging the implementation gap and realizing the strategic objective:

  • Business Architecture as a Strategic tool for assessment, planning, and analysis. Explore Business Architecture constructs and introduce TOGAF as a full life-cycle bridging the strategy to execution teams.
  • Business Capability Models as a tool to define Agile story.
  • Stakeholder engagement tools to ensure project success by identifying key roles in the value proposition and their leverage in the success of the project based on interest and power grid.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding a Business Capability Model and it's use in Agile Stories.
  • Stakeholder Engagement for successful projects.
  • TOGAF - A strategy tool for transformation
