Ep. 26 - Communicating the value of architecture: Laurie Kelly

One of the biggest problems of architecture groups was (is?) that they are doing good work, but that will not be recognized by others. One of the causes for that is that their repository and artifacts have almost no visibility outside of their group. To mitigate this situation, we are speaking with Laurie Kelly about how to communicate the value of architecture in today's episode of the What's Your Baseline Podcast.

Laurie is the Global Director for Demand Generation at Ardoq, an Enterprise Architecture tool vendor. But she comes with a 25 year background in Marketing, where she held leading Marketing positions at PWC and Mega.

She is excited about the new tools for Marketing automation that allow to capture insights and ROI tracking which has not been available before. She uses this knowledge to help companies and organizations modernize their thought leadership and increase customer engagement, whether in-person or across the digital biosphere of web, mobile, email and social media. Further, she uses her passion to make a difference in her local community by engaging in organizations and projects that cultivate innovative learning.

We are talking about the following topics:

  • Laurie's background and ambition
  • Defining "success" for architecture, why it is important, who it needs to be successful with, and how to do this
  • Failures of communicating the value
  • How architects can enhance their perceived value - how to communicate, which channels to use, and when to communicate
  • How this can support Marketing to create an effective sales/practice tool
  • Laurie's immediate four tips to improve talking to non-architects

Ep. 25 - (Another) Ten Things I've Learned

We made it - 25 long form episodes of the podcast (and 7 "Shorts" as well). 

By popular demand - and because our statistics shows it - we are having "(Another) Ten Things I've Learned" episode. This time we are talking about three major areas:

How to measure your architecture and improvement programs

   1. Architecture / BPM is not about the topics at hand (apps, processes, etc.) it is about people and how people interact with each other

   2. When measuring architecture, make things SMART

   3. Process Mining is the “next hot thing”, but it is not all and other, older process improvement methods still have their place

   4. Process and Task Mining can’t shotgun a Solution

How to get your arms around (some of) the people aspects

   5. There is a new interest in “Process” while “EA” is still stuck in technology

   6. We have a responsibility to enable the next generation of BPM and EA

   7. Enablement must include “why”

   8. Internal communications cannot come with expectations of attention

How the "new reality" in which we work for two years by now will affect us practitioners

   9. We need to rethink the role of “The Office”

   10. Podcasts and videos are the new way to communicate the topics
