Why Business Architect?

In today's complex new economy driven by knowledge and systemic innovation, business architects are in growing demand.  Today's companies need business architects who can take a systems view of a business and build synergies.

To build a winning synergistically integrated organization, companies need cross-functionally excellent people who can tie several silos of business development expertise together, create synergies, and then lead people who will put their plans into action.

Who Is Business Architect?

Business architect is a person that initiates new business ventures or leads business innovation, designs a winning business model, and builds a sustainable balanced business system for a lasting success.

Matsushita's 7 Principles of Management

Business architects can be found in a multitude of business settings: corporate change leaders, initiators of joint ventures, managers of radical innovation projects, in-company ventures, spin-outs, or new start-up ventures. Although the settings in which business architects act are different, they all design and run a new venture to achieve its sustainable growth.

Select the Right Focus for Business Change and Growth

To decide which business change and strategic innovation concept is appropriate to your company, the first thing to do is to ask whether the company is generally doing the right things (effectiveness), but just needs to do them better (efficiency), or whether it needs to do new things... More

Work ON Your Business

Most businesspeople are so busy working for their business or in their business that they never find time to work on their business. Thus they fail to anticipate what might happen or what they might be able to make happen. Unless you regularly schedule time (one-day out-of-the-office meeting a month at least) to work on your business and answer critical questions, you'll never achieve your stretch goals.

Discover Synergies

Synergy is the energy or force created by the working together of  various parts or processes.

Synergy in business is the benefit derived from combining two or more elements (or businesses) so that the performance of the combination is higher than that of the sum of the individual elements (or businesses)... More

Balance Your Business System

If your business is in flames, stop what you are doing, quiet your mind and take a bird's-eye view of your business. Drop any misconceptions you may have as to what you should be doing, and then re-balance your business.  As you regain the balance in your business, you will regain control. A business is more than finance. Performance measures need to be aligned with the organization's strategy. The Business Systems approach considers business as system of interrelated factors of strategy, owners, investors, management, workers, finance, processes, products, suppliers, customers, and competitors.


Use Integrated Approach to the Management Process

The integrated business systems approach to business development and the management process is what distinguishes modern cross-functionally excellent business architects from functional managers.

As a business architect and an extremely effective leader, you must have a broad view to be able to link together synergistically! the key components of corporate success from functional planning to cross-functional cooperation, from supply chain management to customer value creation, from the art of continuous learning to the practice of effective communication and influencing people and bundle them in an intellectual, innovative and pragmatic package that can be used to achieve sustainable competitive advantage and business growth, both top-line and bottom-line. To fulfil these responsibilities, a Business Architect typically should have broad cross-functional expertise.
