Introduction to the Intersection Toolkit for Enterprise Design

The upcoming Intersection Toolkit connects a set of practical tools coming from design- and architecture disciplines of many kinds to help people create better enterprises. Enterprise Design connects customer-centric business, product and service development to the enterprise transformation required to deliver. And no, this is not about running another Design Thinking workshop or learning a huge Enterprise Architecture framework by heart. Instead, this course will teach you how to use a combined design and architecture approach to give shape to enterprises.

Done in a holistic and systemic fashion, Enterprise Design can help you deal with challenges of innovation and transformation. It acts as the glue between Customer Experience and Business Architecture, and enables you and your team to tackle the complexity that makes ambitious endeavours so ambitious – and worthy of applying your collective intelligence and creativity.

This course will be specifically designed and adapted for:
  • Enterprise and Business Architecture Teams: learn to radically simplify the EA frameworks and tools you use today (such as TOGAF®, ArchiMate® or BPMN®) and establish links to relevant related fields (product/service design, executive management, strategic governance, software development).
  • Service, Product and UX Design Teams: learn how to translate your experience vision and product/service designs into actionable enterprise change, and address the operational, business and organisation elements needed to actually deliver at scale.
  • Organisation Design and Transformation Teams: design for realistic enterprise change beyond the formal structure (blame chart) or ways of working, and achieve organisational coherence between roles and decisions, operating models and IT systems, offerings and business models, customer and employee experience.
What you will learn
  • How to establish Enterprise Design as a collaborative practice with easy to use, elegant and beautiful maps for everybody
  • How to use a combined set of design and architecture tools to scale your practice to the enterprise level, going from strategic challenges to change and outcomes
  • Navigate complex enterprise challenges and co-create potential solutions using the Enterprise Design Facets
  • Identify and apply patterns to adapt your practice, your creations and your behaviour to maximise enterprise impact
  • Design brilliant Enterprise Maps that people love to use, to enable traceability between the Customer Experience Journey, Operational Business Architecture, Processes and Organisation
  • Manage your digital capabilities and IT application landscape towards the goals and overall Enterprise Design
  • Take away a model and an approach to drive innovation and transformation projects by design in your own or client organisations
  • Identify and apply patterns to adapt your practice, your creations and your behaviour to maximise enterprise impact
