Just like a wheel needs a hub to rotate around, the business needs a strong hub or center.
San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) September 17, 2013
Business leaders and project professionals looking for excellence in their requirements management and business analysis will find guidance in the new Enfocus Solutions webinar, “Initiating a Center of Excellence,” to be held October 8, 2013, at 12 pm EST. Registration is now open.
Presenter Enfocus Solutions CEO Keith Ellis explained that many businesses recognize the need for centers of excellence in ensuring requirements reusability and full traceability across the enterprise. The Centers of Excellence business method promotes best practices and leading-edge solutions and introduces rigor and discipline to accomplish complex objectives.
But while Centers of Excellence are highly desired in the business community, Ellis noted that many of these resources are missing the most critical part: The center.
“Just like a wheel needs a hub to rotate around, the business needs a strong hub or center. When analysis operates from this center, all parts of the business realizes the benefits and the wheel turns smoothly,” he said. “Without that hub, the wheel falls apart.”
In “Initiating a Center of Excellence,” Ellis will detail the challenges businesses experience when incorporating this method into their business architecture. Ellis will cover how to create a solid “center” of best practice references, methodology, and principles; use and reuse enterprise-wide assets; access stakeholder input, business rules, applications, and data across multiple solutions; and communicate with stakeholders.
Key takeaways include the ability to:
- Recognize the challenges organizations face when setting up a Center of Excellence without a “center”
- Understand how full enterprise-wide traceability enhances the speed of impact analysis and improves stakeholder identification
- Prove the value of a Center of Excellence to the organization
The webinar is part of the company’s ongoing educational series, which in 2013 alone has attracted over 2,000 attendees from multiple industries, including government, financial, insurance, health care, and technology.
