October 2 @ 11:00 am – 2:30 pm PDT ADVANCED COURSE 4: LEVERAGING BUSINESS ARCHITECTURE WITH AGILE METHODOLOGIES

It then overlays business architecture onto the SAFe framework highlighting where it fits, and discusses the role of business architects with leaders, product owners, enterprise architects, and other roles. Finally, the course provides guidance on how to integrate business architecture into an organization’s agile efforts and build partnerships.
