Business Enterprises or Organizations often start as a small entity with a small scoped business and revenue model. In the public sector, the entities often start with a small scoped service delivery model. Over time, however, the scope of these organizations grows as more business ideas and product or service lines are added to the organization, or as the scope of operation grows. With time, what started as a simple enterprise ends up big and complex.
In the process of growth, enterprises often lose internal coherence to some extent. Their business processes across organizational units lose some degree of operational consistency and smoothness in their interactions. Duplication in resources creep in unnoticed as individual organizational units operate with some degree of detachment from each other. Inefficiencies creep in and internal and external persona, which interact with elements of the enterprise begin to experience poor service delivery and poor customer experience (CX). These, among others, are symptoms of an organization that is getting out of control, and which needs a review of its Enterprise Architecture.
Enterprise Architecture breaks down an organization into its granular elements, streamlines these elements, and harmonizes their interactions with each other. An organization that undergoes an Enterprise Architecture review is like a poorly performing engine that undergoes full servicing and reconditioning. The organization emerges from the Enterprise Architecture project as a newly redesigned entity with its overall objective clearly defined, and with all the components or enablers required by the organization to achieve its overall objective well in place.
