Business Architecture is about more than software requirements

I believe that when when business analysis is limited to (or centred around) the software development lifecycle, it ceases to be about defining the needs of the business and instead supports the main need of the solution provider: deliver software to schedule, which should be a means and not an end in itself.

It often surprises business analysts, project managers and scrum masters when I tell them the business architecture work I do is not (just) about their software development project. This slide deck explains my reasoning. What have been your experiences?

This slide deck has prompted some interesting discussion over on LinkedIn.

Kind regards.
