Knowledge Management Institute (9/11/2013) - Business Archiecture Linked to Knowledge Management
Strategy tells us what we are going to do responding to the business landscape and business architecture defines the structure of how we execute delivering goods or services into that landscape market. The 2 core enablers of execution today that support the execution are knowledge and the digital part of the enterprise or as most people say "IT".
Effective use and management of knowledge depends on the linkage to the business architecture.
The business architecture is made up of several types of models that contain language phrases. These phrases can be used in analytics to assess the impact of change, rank options and compare alternatives. These phrase analytics provide a link between strategy, process and knowledge. There are 5 categories of models that form the business architecture. A key category of business architecture is the knowledge model of the business. Constructing and analyzing the knowledge model is core to understanding impact of change on the knowledge of the enterprise.

- Use a technique for ranking knowledge based on risk versus yield analysis
