New Release of the BIZBOK® Guide!

The Business Architecture Guild produces A Guide to the Business Architecture Body of Knowledge® (BIZBOK® Guide) in a series of iterative stages to incorporate the practice-based experience and expertise of Guild members who represent a large and growing community of practice. Each content release builds upon previous releases, expanding the breadth of practice and depth of content. This community of practice represents hundreds of organizations, in multiple industries, across six continents.

New and revised content, covering an ever broadening swath of business architecture areas of practice and reflecting the maturation of the business architecture field, is released periodically. The process of content creation, review and packaging is managed by the Business Architecture Guild. Work on the BIZBOK® Guide is progressing according to a master plan. Guild members can review and use content released in A Guide to the Business Architecture Body of Knowledge® (BIZBOK® Guide) to further their business architecture efforts. At the same time work is continuing on future releases.


We are very pleased to announce our latest release of the Business Architecture Body of Knowledge® (BIZBOK® Guide) v. 7.0.


A few of highlights in the new release include:

  • Addition of new End-to-End Strategy Realization (Section 3.11), based on expanded, detailed approach to the strategy realization path introduced and now refined in the BIZBOK® Guide Part 1
  • Addition of new transportation reference model (Section 8.7) and major updates to financial services, manufacturing, healthcare, insurance, and common reference models (Sections 8.1-8.3, 8.5, 8.6)
