Wondering how to start or mature your business architecture practice,
how to provide insights into your business transformations,
how to support the execution of your business strategies, or
simply have a sounding board for your business architecture engagements?
Our mentoring and coaching sessions are designed to support you with these and other business scenarios and challenges, no matter where you are in your business architecture journey.
Mentoring provides a sustainable partnership in which the knowledge and know-how is retained within your organization. Emphasizing the pragmatism principle and the fact that business architecture is not a one size fits all, we leverage our years of experience and expertise to guide you through your endeavours and provide you advice on how to apply business architecture tools and techniques in your specific business scenarios.
“Our organization has benefitted from Navid’s mentoring sessions by supporting our budding practice; capability and value stream mapping and continued guidance on next steps. He has provided simple and effective high-level model examples applicable for a new practice that is striving for acceptance. These template blueprints were effective in demonstrating the potential of the discipline and value delivery for executives. Navid brings a practical approach in applying the business architecture theory to our organization. He finds a way to ensure complexities are simplified and representations are about the business. Each session brings insight in applying the theory to our business in this early stage of maturity. I look forward to each session where one outcome is always a growth in confidence in building the practice within our organization.” A Business Architect in a government agency in Canadian federal government
Archist provides virtual mentoring in the form of coaching hours to individuals and teams.
"I had the chance to have behind the scenes support with the mentoring sessions. The hours spent to discuss the implementation of business architecture [BA] practice in my organization with my mentor was really helpful. My mentor helped me to define a gradual strategy in order to integrate the practice in the organization. My objective was to show quickly the value of the practice by showing how BA can help to follow and monitor a big digital transformation project like the one my organization is actually running. My mentor suggests some blueprints that can help me demonstrating BA’s value quickly in order to get stakeholders’ buy-in more easily. Thank you very much Navid for your very good support!"
