About this Event

Format

Two online sessions on April 13 and 20, 2021, 12PM - 3PM EST (6PM - 9PM CET) supplemented with optional prework, inter-session work, and afterwork including videos, readings, and discussion thereof.

Overview

This masterclass builds on our work with software, system and enterprise architects and product, program and executive managers including CTOs and CIOs. It is a new class in this format, but leverages various of our architecture and leadership workshops.

Business strategy informs and is informed by technical strategy (or ought to); hence our focus on both business strategy and technical strategy.

Business Strategy

We explore business strategy from the perspective of technologists partnering with business leaders to shape value creation and strategic direction. We blend theory and practice, and present the following topics with a mix of discussion and visual modeling:

  • Ecosystems, value networks, value flows and transformations
  • Various strategy models (survey and history): Porter, Kaplan and Norton, Christensen, OKRs, Wardley
  • Strategy as fractal and emergent; strategic horizons
  • Competition, Ecosystems, and Business Models
  • Strategic landscape mapping, trends and projections
  • Value and Design
  • Business Strategy Canvas
  • Business capabilities and Wardley Maps

Technical Strategy

We explore technical strategy in terms of technical options and directions and technical context setting:

  • Technology ecosystems, trends, technology radars, projections and impact
  • Platforms and technology strategy
  • Expressions of technical strategy: principles, architectural styles, decisions guiding technical choices
  • Business and organizational implications of technical decisions
  • Wardley Map drill down
  • CI/CD/Progressive delivery, options and experiments

Strategy Implications

We draw these areas together, considering the interaction across business and technical strategy, and models of strategic horizons and responsiveness (Boyd's OODA loop).
