In this Cutter Executive Update, business architect and industry thought leader, Whynde Kuehn, states the need for business architecture in organizations has never been greater than it is today, as practitioners must continually sense and respond to opportunity and change. Though the business architecture discipline continues to gain traction at an ever-increasing pace, how the discipline is practiced is critical for its adoption and effectiveness. This white paper provides an overview of the importance of using visual techniques as part of a business architecture practice and highlights three aspects: visual design, graphic recording and facilitation, as well as storytelling. (Requires Cutter membership).
