Business Architecture Guild Winter Newsletter, 2015

Welcome to the Business Architecture Guild Newsletter for Winter, 2015. And we do have NEWS!

Business Architecture Innovation Summits

Registration is now open for the Business Architecture Innovation Summit event we're having on March 24 and 25, in Reston, Virginia. Please do make plans to attend. We have a wonderful program. In addition to the two day event on Tues and Wed, we are going to have, for the first time ever, a Pre-Summit Primer on the preceding Monday afternoon, March 23, from 2pm to 5pm. Space is very limited, but if you are newer to business architecture or have less experience, please come to this event. It’s free with your Summit registration. We are again holding our Campfire after the Summit on Thursday, March 26 from 8:30 am to about noon. The Campfire is our informal member meeting. No registration for this is required and no fees are being charged, so just show up and get ready to volunteer - or at least get the latest updates and network with fellow Guild members. Please see our Events page for more information and agendas. Registration discounts are available.

New Website Features

We’ve been on the new platform for over 6 months now and we are figuring out how you use it. We have added some videos on the Member-Only Resources page to help you discover some features you may not have noticed yet. And please continue to refer to the Member Profile Overview, under Resources. There are a lot of useful features included with the member profile, including the ability to create a blog and store files and links. If you are a new member, please read the New Member Brochure, found on the Member-Only Resources page.

Under Community, we have Forums, which are starting to see some traffic, a Photo Gallery, and our Groups page. We are trying out a new feature - The Staging Zone for new collaborative teams. The purpose of this page is for members interested in topics for the BIZBOK® Guide or whitepapers to find other interested members. It also brings more transparency to the work that is going on here at the Guild. Currently we have one pending new team – Business Architecture and Sustainability!

Of interest to many of you, we have posted the Guild's Organizational Chart. We hope you find this useful and educational.

We have a new article posted on the public resources page - Business Analyst to Business Architect.We're very pleased to release a new whitepaper produced by the Business Architecture Guild Requirements Team, which can also be found on the public Resources page - Business Architecture and Agile Methodologies.

Thank you so much for your continued support of our mission
