Approach

The course is presented online but live, via Zoom with interactive video, discussion and breakaway groups. Half the time is "hands on" tackling assignments to reinforce concepts and techniques.

Rich use is made of case study material through the full course, allowing students to apply concepts through a full lifecycle.

Full notes are provided and enrichment via short videos, provided articles, references and links. We also provide an eBook on Business Architecture and access to an alumni website where further materials are added over time.


Who Should Attend

Senior business analysts, strategists and business architects often need to quickly and competently analyse a business (and its context) and make well founded recommendations for improvement/ transformation, convince stakeholders of their merits and transfer the ideas into implementation. Senior managers of Programme/ Project offices and directors of strategic change programmes need to define, scope, estimate and justify change initiatives and programmes.


Prerequisites

There are no formal prerequisites, but it is recommended that students have prior experience of business or other work experience. Exposure to information technology, projects and modelling would also be an advantage.


Comments from Past Attendees

  • “Having participated in the above-mentioned course under the auspices of Inspired.org during Feb-June 2021 I can unreservedly say that it was one of the most encompassing courses on Business Architecture that I have had the privilege to attend. I would recommend the course as a superb source of insights into modern day business architecture, and to place you in a position to take advantage of opportunities in this field." - Robert McKee (20 year Bus. Arch Veteran)
  • "The course was well managed with materials at a similar quality to that of Oxford University. The subjects covered extend beyond the traditional content that you would expect - to starting to think outside the box, different perspectives, what matters to the design of a business and its people… If you are looking for a course that will introduce you to some of the latest research in this field and beyond, I would highly recommend this course.” - Damian Gawlowski (Business Arch.
