Roland Woldt and J-M Erlendson co-host the podcast “What’s Your Baseline? Enterprise Architecture and Business Process Management Demystified.” For additional notes, a full transcript of the episode and much, much more, go to the What’s Your Baseline website.
In this episode of What’s Your Baseline, Roland and J-M discuss the why of architecture – specifically enterprise architecture (EA) and business process management (BPM) – and why these two topics are not all that different but rather two sides of the same coin.
The episode will take listeners on a fully immersive introductory tour of EA and BPM, including:
- The four phases of process management
- The history of EA as a practice
- How organizations practice these two topics
- The merger of strategy groups, architecture groups and PMOs
- Capabilities as a bridge between strategy and execution
- Risks and benefits of these capabilities
- Capability configurations as a planning tool
- Case studies of a retail and a military client
If you’re just getting started with business process transformation, or if you find yourself treading water in the alphabet soup often surrounding it, this is a great place to start.
