Join a Guild Group

The Business Architecture Guild is a community of business architects who have come together to build and expand their profession. The Guild is an international, diverse community of business architecture practitioners, beneficiaries and interested parties. We are a collaborative collective where individuals can learn with and from their peers, explore and develop new ideas, and further the practice and discipline of business architecture. Please find out more about our groups and perhaps consider joining one of them.


Collaborative Teams


Collaborative Teams create and update the sections of  A Guide to the Business Architecture Body of Knowledge® (BIZBOK® Guide), but they do more than that – they write white papers, they build presentations for Guild educational events and other arenas. Members with any level of experience may apply to these teams. The Collaborative Teams each have a leader and a mentor. Any member may help form new Collaborative Teams at any time through our Staging Zone. This is how we Build the Guide.


Operational Support Groups


We also have opportunities for volunteers to Guide the Guild by volunteering on our Operational Support teams and committee/ As a not-for-profit membership association, primarily volunteers run the Guild. We don’t receive any revenue for our publications, webinars, or co-hosted events. We don’t have a dedicated office. We don’t have a customer service staff or a technical support team. We make every effort to keep membership costs down and put the dues revenue we receive into member benefits. All the ideation, program offerings, writing and decision-making is done by volunteers. We rely on members for their ideas, input and time to Guide the Guild. While not all of these teams are open to membership, we want you to know the behind the scenes work we are doing to mature the discipline of business architecture


Industry Reference Model Teams


New in 2016, our Industry Reference Model Teams grew out of our Industry Reference Model Building Workshop held in December, 2015. We plan to continue adding new workshops and new industry model reference model teams.

Images were created by an attendee at the Industry Reference Model Building Workshop held in December, 2015 in La Jolla California. The Business Architecture Guild was presented with the drawings at the end of the conference and given permission to use them. We're honored to be the source of inspiration!
