Louise A. Harris 9:15 - 10:15
How to quickly achieve business objectives that enable strategic goals is a hot topic in the business world right now. As the pace of change increases, the timeframe for accomplishing strategic goals decreases and the risk of failure grows. The traditional approach of detailed analysis of current state and gaps can no longer keep up with business needs for rapid results. An architectural approach to designing what needs to happen in order to achieve business objectives greatly assists in reducing timelines and also improves the potential for success. By utilizing enterprise architecture capabilities and assets to design and implement strategy, organizations can reduce the risks and increase their confidence in rapid realization of strategic goals.
