Business Capability Maps: How to Develop a Good One!
Join IIBA® Melbourne as they host an online event specifically on how to develop business capability maps.
Ever wondered how to develop business capability maps? or perhaps you need a refresher?
Join Mohammad Mirkarimi Senior Business Architect at Capsifi and David Grindlay Principal Business Architect at Capsifi as they guide us through this session.
Captivated by art, science and business - Mohammad is trying to bring these three together. Moh is a drummer, a physics and biology enthusiast, and a business architect and analyst. He has studied Engineering, Business Management and Finance in academia. Also, equipped with IIBA, TOGAF and The Business Architecture Guild bodies of knowledge. Moh has worked as team member, leader and visionary in Management Consulting, Banking, Wealth, Insurance, Government, Telecom and Education industries.
With over 15 years of experience implementing software, David started his career as a business analyst in South Africa primarily in the financial services – insurance industry. In 2014 he moved over to Australia where he really started to observe the notorious gap between business strategies and project roadmaps as well as the downstream implications. More recently in his career, he gained broader exposure to other industries (Retail, Financial Services, Government and Hospitality) helping to structurally decompose business strategies, define the business landscape and help project teams (Business and Technical) realise and align on their common purpose. Today, David considers himself a Business Architect, doing whatever it takes to help companies realise their vision.
This session will contain two parts:
- The first part is about learning the basics. There will also be time to review some theoretical stuff – but we promise it won’t be boring! We’ll review The Business Architecture Guild’s view by taking an Object-oriented approach to developing a business capability map
- In the second part, we’ll pick a business (a simple one for this exercise, e.g. local cafe) and apply what we’ve studied to develop a business capability map for the chosen business.
At the end of the session, there will be time to share our learnings!
