Business Architecture to Create an Organization Unit’s Identity

  1. The IT Unit had been split into two different units.
  2. This is what we used to rebuild our identity.
  3. The goal was to create a consistent and clear message of the the unit is, what it provides and the focus on the business aspect.
  4. Used three tools, Service Model Canvas, Maturity Model, 
  5. Service Model Canvas
    1. A one page description of the service designed with UX in mind. (See slides)
    2. USERS: Users, Service Proposition, Channels, Usage
    4. RISKS: Challengers and Alternatives
    5. PERFORMANCE: ROI and KPIs - Not much done on ROI but much discussion about KPIs
  6. Maturity Model
    Means to assess how well the service operates today and how well it may need to operate in the future.
    1. Very clean expression of where the services are and where they need to be
    2. Tailored existing models to meet their needs. Attributes: Administrative and Governance, Strategy and Planning, Operation, Finances, Technology
  7. Business Motivation Model
    1. Describes the Ends and the Means you use to achieve them.
    2. Vision, mission, strategies and objectives
    3. Used a small part of the model, the six major components
    4. A nice structured way to drill down from the high level goals to the activities that support them
  8. Other interesting tools they chose not to use (see slides)
  9. Lessons Learned
    1. Value in just doing the exercise and having these essential conversations
    2. Build unit identity
    3. Build trust
    4. Others (see slides)
