The way we interact with business is changing, from online to offline. Organizations are going through fundamental upheaval. At the heart of this change is the business architect. Once considered a niche role, the business architect is now one that most organisations have on the employee headcount, for tackling strategy to leading and shaping transformation. In this paper, authors Mike Clark, founder of Cohesion 360 and Whynde Kuehn, Principal of S2E Consulting Inc., answer some of these core questions, with the aim of laying down a blueprint for the evolution of business architecture and the business architect role for business architecture practitioners, for organisations, and for the business architecture discipline overall.
