业务架构概述

Business Architecture defines the structure of the enterprise in terms of its governance structure, business processes, and business information. In defining the structure of the enterprise, business architecture considers customers, finances, and the ever-changing market to align strategic goals and objectives with decisions regarding products and services; partners and suppliers; organization; capabilities; and key initiatives. 

Business Architecture primarily focuses on the business motivations, business operations and business analysis frameworks and related networks that link these aspects of the enterprise together.

In order to develop an integrated view of an enterprise, many different views of an organization are typically developed. The key views of the enterprise within the business architecture are:

  1. the Business Strategy view
  2. the Business Capabilities view
  3. the Value Stream view
  4. the Business Knowledge view, and
  5. the Organizational view.

The Business Strategy view captures the tactical and strategic goals that drive an organization forward. The goals are decomposed into various tactical approaches for achieving these goals and for providing traceability through the organization. These tactical and strategic goals are mapped to metrics that provide ongoing evaluation of how successfully the organization is achieving its goals.

The Business Capabilities view describes the primary business functions of an enterprise and the pieces of the organization that perform those functions. This view further distinguishes between customer-facing functions, supplier-related functions, business execution, and business management functions.

The Value stream view defines the set the end-to-end set of activities that deliver value to external and internal stakeholders – transcending organizational boundaries. Value streams are the vehicle for viewing the business “in motion” and are the key aspect of business architecture that enables alignment of business processes with the business architecture

The Business Knowledge view establishes the shared semantics (e.g., customer, order, and supplier) within an organization and relationships between those semantics (e.g., customer name, order date, supplier name). These semantics form the vocabulary that the organization relies upon to communicate and structure the understanding of the areas they operate within.

The Organizational view captures the relationships among roles, capabilities and business units, the decomposition of those business units into subunits, and the internal or external management of those units.

In addition to the above views of the enterprise, the relationships connecting the aforementioned views form the foundation of the business architecture. This foundation provides the framework that supports the achievement of key goals; planning and execution of various business scenarios; and delivery of bottom line business value.

一致性溢价 The Coherence Premium

专注于自己最擅长的事情的公司可以获得可持续的卓越回报。事实就是这么简单,但要内化却非常困难。在为每个业务部门和产品线做出每项运营决策时,确实很少有公司专注于“我们做得比任何人都好”。更罕见的是将其差异化的内部能力与正确的外部市场地位相结合的公司。我们称这些公司为“一致的”。

我们并不是建议公司无视市场信号;所有战略都是在这一重要背景下制定的。然而,我们建议公司从相反的方向开始,弄清楚他们真正擅长什么,然后开发这些能力(最多三到六个),直到它们成为一流的和互锁的。从那时起,战略就变成了将独特的能力系统与正确的市场机会相结合的问题 – 市场会以巨大的收益回报他们。我们称之为“一致性溢价”,我们已经对其进行了测量。
