    John A. Zachman
    "Thoughts on Enterprise Architecture "
    If someone asks those of us from the IT community what we do for a living, we tend to say, “we build and run systems.” We don’t say, “we Design Enterprises,” that is, we don’t design the Enterprise, we build what the Enterprise wants us to build. And, our resulting system(s) are literally, THE ENTERPRISE. There are 30 unique descriptive representations required for designing any object and further, these descriptions must be “designed for change” as CHANGE is the constant demand. If you are struggling to manage a non-adaptive enterprise and dysfunctional systems, this will be an essential experience!

    Filip Hendrickx
    "How to be innovative like a successful startup in the digital era"
    Innovation is hard. While ideas are cheap and plentiful, execution often falls short, and few ideas lead to valuable results within reasonable time and budget. In this talk, Filip will show us how to make the shift we need to make to guide idea development and help bring the most valuable ideas to fruition. - Shift from product thinking to customer thinking. - Turn a “we believe” mindset into a “what are our assumptions & how can we validate them” mindset. - Getting MVPs right: what do we need to build first? Filip will also explain how the shift to digital can help us but at the same time lead us astray. This shift helps BAs facilitate their organisation’s innovation process, from ideation to value creation. It enables innovation projects to follow a validation driven approach, building customer feedback and agility into the process right from the start.

    "Skills and Competencies in the Digital Age"
    Our business environment is changing and the skills and competencies of the business analysis professional need to change to accommodate these changes. While the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge remains our core, additional hard and soft skills are needed for the professional to evolve and expand their role while providing more leadership and successful outcomes to the organizations that we serve.

    "Engineering for Business Agility under Digital Transformation"
    Business agility doesn’t happen by accident. Tinkering with organizational schemes can be helpful, but will not be sufficient. Rapid software development can’t get you there either. You must engineer for change – and your solutions must be scalable and sustainable.

    Challenges abound. Organizations are undergoing rapid digital transformation. Most processes and entire industries are being disrupted. How do you survive and thrive in these challenging times?

    The Knowledge Age requires major adjustments. Professionals need a laser focus on the knowledge assets that make the company smart – rules, vocabularies, decisions, and strategy. Business agility can be engineered under digital transformation!
    • How you should think about business agility
    • Why data quality is more of a problem – and a different problem – than you think
    • Policy busting – key to business transformation
