Overview: This workshop provides participants with a toolset for developing a business architecture that goes well beyond the technology-oriented approaches typically employed by EA. Instead participants are shown how to apply a 5-level framework for modeling any organization, from the top down to the user and enabling technology.
This multi-layered approach makes visible all of the key processing sub-systems and shows how critical business drivers, such as profitability, cost, and quality can be linked to drive performance at all levels. This course expounds on the core concepts described in the book Rediscovering Value: Leading the 3-D Enterprise to Sustainable Success, co-authored by the presenter
Why should you attend: Enterprise Architecture (EA) is an entire discipline within IT, devoted to defining the major components of organizations to which technology is a supporting set of products and services. But EA experts are confused and disagreed about what an enterprise architecture is, how to depict one, and what purpose it serves in guiding technology development.
There is no one model or approach to EA. The Zachman Framework has been referenced again and again in numerous models but it’s never clear what the relationship is to a given EA and Zachman’s original work, nor is there any reason to consider the Zachman model to be correct or superior to anything else. EA is a discipline without any clear standards.
Areas Covered in the Session:
Distinguish between levels of business architecture
Apply a hierarchical structure to the depiction of business processing sub-systems and their linkages between business objectives and work objectives
Identify and practice with modeling tools proven to be most effective for each level of a business architecture
Distinguish between approaches to work system boundary setting that do and don’t support an effective business architecture model
Who Will Benefit:
Business process modelers

The founder of PDL was the late Dr. Geary Rummler who co-authored the book Improving Performance: How to Manage the White Space on the Organization Chart, which helped trigger the process improvement/reengineering movement. Alan and his partners continue to evolve and expand the theory base and methodologies introduced in Improving Performance to include breakthrough approaches to management systems, measurement, strategy, and organization structure design and implementation. Alan has consulted with dozens of companies on performance management and measurement, helping to install effective, practical process management and measurement systems.
This course will build on the Validation and 21 CFR 11 Compliance Basic Course, to give hands on experience on executing on the computer systems validation of a system, and to discuss related activities such as Validation Master Plan, Infrastructure Qualification, Project Management for Validation and Validation of Test Tools
The attendees must have attended the Basic Validation & 21 CFR 11 Compliance. This is a very hands-on class and the attendees will be expected to use templates provided in the class to create the complete package for the validation of a system2-day In-person Seminar on Advanced Course: Validation & 21 CFR 11 Compliance of Computer Systems at Washington DC
