I attended the Business Process Innovation Conference in Marietta, GA last week and had the opportunity to hear from some very insightful speakers.
One of the hot topics of conversation revolved around enterprise analysis and how it can add significant value to organizations. Enterprise analysis is work done pre-project to determine the appropriate portfolio path based on the strategic goals of the organization. Organizations have found that determining the optimum investment strategy requires significant analysis before making decisions to implement new solutions. This work has always kind of been done in some form or fashion by resources that were identified as having the ability to think outside the box but organizations are now seeking ways to grow this ability internally.
If you are doing enterprise analysis right now; what types of tools and techniques are you utilizing? What types of skills training do you think you need to make you more effective?
