Business Architecture Foundation Workshop Training

This hands-on workshop explores the subject of Business Architecture, providing teams with a solid foundation for execution.  The truth is, that your business has an architecture.  You are either in the driver's seat defining your business's structure and roadmap to success (i.e. your Business Architecture) or you are at the mercy of the ad-hoc architecture that you have stumbled into over the past 10-15 years.
