Business Motivation Modelling with Sparx Enterprise Architect (1 day)


OMG Business Motivation Modelling provides an effective way to capture the expectations and decisions of C-level executives, as well as the key constrains and regulations. Conducting BMM is perhaps the toughest test for a Modeller: to be successful, Business Motivation Model should be partially owned by high-level executives of the enterprise, the category of people that are usually very far from visual modelling. However, when implemented correctly, Business Motivation Modelling can:

  • Establish effective communication with enterprise decision-makers;
  • Deliver and validate Business-IT alignment;
  • Enables highly effective project prioritization, justification and progress assessment;
  • Provide a platform for justifying, choosing and guiding SOA implementation;
  • Gain sponsorship for a major transformation undertaking;
  • Add strategic angle to Business Analysis activities.
