The Business Architecture Guild and the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) have formalized a Memorandum of Understanding between the two organisations. Both organisations are looking forward to exciting new opportunities for collaboration across business architecture and business analysis. The strategic alliance recognizes the leadership that each organization holds in their respective fields.
Areas of co-operation will include alignment with their respective bodies of knowledge, competency models, career paths and professional certification programs. According to Business Architecture Guild Co-founder and Director, Mike Rosen, the Guild and IIBA seek a wide variety of opportunities to showcase the collaboration between the organisations. “The Guild and IIBA will seek to align our communities of practices through content, events, and related means. Working together will enable both organisations to leverage more opportunities to promote the role and value of business architecture and business analysis and provide value to our members.”
“Through our strategic alliance both our memberships will gain access to leading industry knowledge, techniques and professional development resources to help business architecture and business analysis professionals define what successful business transformation looks like to the organisations they represent. We also look forward to the continued grassroots involvement of practitioners to advance both professions,” said Ken Fulmer, President and CEO, IIBA.
