Dojo Talk: Episode 1 - The Waza of Business Architecture

Updated: Oct 16, 2020

To wrap up Perspective 1: Organization, I had the pleasure of conducting a live interview with my dear friend, and colleague, Columbus Brown. Columbus possess a lot of knowledge on the topic of Business Architecture, and I couldn't think of anyone else better to conduct my first ever live interview. Now with that said, we did have some technical difficulties during the interview, and after (LOL), but I learned a lot through the process. I want this to be as raw, and live, as possible so we just went with the flow. I am sure over time I will continue to increase my skill on creating these episodes.

In relation to the naming of the episodes. To be consistent with my Martial Arts brand, of course I had to give it a martial arts name 😆. I couldn't think of a better name than "Dojo Talk". The dojo is the training ground for martial arts, and all of these talks will train us in new ways of thinking, new concepts, and increase our knowledge. I'm excited to continue to produce episodes as this one was fun, despite some challenges.

In this episode we will focus on the following comments/questions:

  1. When Columbus was first exposed to Business Architecture.

  2. What is business architecture, and what does it address?

  3. Why is business architecture important?

  4. Who typically does this type work?

  5. What are some of the key challenges IT is facing today?

  6. What techniques are leveraged to effectively conduct business architecture?

  7. What are some of the Do’s and Don’ts of business architecture?

  8. What are the different types of service models leveraged in business architecture?

  9. What’s critical to success?

In answering question 9 Columbus lays out a nice roadmap on how to approach business architecture, or as he calls it "business design". You will need to listen to find out why he chooses to use "business design" opposed to "business architecture".

So sit back, relax and welcome to the Dojo.

As always please leave a comment on your thoughts.

Until next time,

The BA Martial Artist 

P.S. Look for the next Perspective to hit the blog site soon!
