The BALC Approach Starts with Leadership Commitment
The BALC-recommended approach gains executive sponsorship and leadership alignment up front, takes a comprehensive view that is best aligned with our customer’s environment and collaborating practices, and leverages excellent resources and enabling technologies that are readily available. The ultimate deliverable is the capacity to deliver the BA value proposition benefits.
There are four fundamental steps to the BALC-approach framework:
- Gain executive sponsorship and leadership alignment around the BA value proposition and why this pursuit must be a strategic imperative with a unified call-to-action.
- Establish starting point by validating current state: fact-finding, validity of prior assessments, or by conducting a formal assessment that is calibrated with industry benchmarks. Establish future state goals.
- Determine the best approach that is aligned with the recommendations from Step 2 and create a comprehensive implementation and adoption management roadmap.
- Implement in accordance with the roadmap, coach the internal practice leadership, and leave behind an adoption management and continuous improvement plan with measureable success criteria.
