Special this year, in conjunction with the Summit, the Business Architecture Guild® is also pleased to sponsor a 1-day Business Architecture Reference Model Workshop on March 23, 2017 also in Reston, VA. The workshop will evolve the "common reference model" and focus on strategic and supporting value streams and capabilities. Common reference model perspectives are shared across multiple vertical industries, be integrated into vertical reference models, and help realize the Guild's strategy of establishing a library of interchangeable reference models as work matures. Stay with us or join us after the Summit for this unique experience of hands-on building capabilities and value streams. This is the perfect practice-run for your own firm's mapping projects.
