Synopsis: “Anatomy of a Business Architect”
Business Architecture is an emerging profession, but it often elicits the question: “What exactly does a Business Architect do?”
Aaron Schnore’s presentation – “The Anatomy of a Business Architect” – aims to answer this question. He will examine the four “personas” of a Business Architect at Credit Suisse:
· Rock Star Consultant
· Information Hunter
· Savvy Orchestrator
· Information Hunter
Successful Business Architects need to embrace all four personas, depending on the nature and phase of their project, as well as the audience or end user. Aaron’s presentation will draw on real-life Business Architecture experiences to illustrate the anatomical characteristics of each Business Architect persona. Scalpels and formaldehyde will be provided.
