Course description

Explore the fundamental concepts and techniques of business architecture and learn how to establish a multi-faceted blueprint of an organisation. Designed for business analysts, business architects, project managers and other change specialists, the course contributes towards the BCS Advanced International Diploma in Business Analysis.

Who will the Course Benefit?

Business analysts, project managers, business managers, and business change specialists – and anyone who requires a thorough understanding of business architecture frameworks. Business Architecture is also a Analytical Skills module on the BCS (ISEB) Advanced Diploma in Business Analysis.

Aimed at business analysts, project and business managers, and business change specialists, the Business Architecture course enables delegates to gain a greater understanding of the key concepts and techniques involved.

The course focuses on the business rather than the technology side of the subject, covering a range of techniques and frameworks as well as the relationship with other architectures and disciplines. Other topics you’ll explore include value chain analysis, understanding business culture and information management.

Presented to you by one of the expert training consultants pictured below, each of whom brings substantial experience of business architecture and business analysis projects to the programme.
