Creating a Core Diagram for Agile Business

Link: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/nickmalik/archive/2012/01/31/creating-a-core-diagram-for-agile-business.aspx

Today, I gave my talk at the Open Group conference that presents a step-by-step method for creating a core diagram that is useful for agile business.  I will blog a series of posts on the topic to share this information to my friends and colleagues on the web.

I will create the following posts.  As I do, I will come back and edit this post to provide a link.  This post will stand as an introduction and table of contents to the topic. 

I will post the following articles:

  • What is a core diagram and what value does it provide?
  • Who cares about a core diagram and what are the scenarios for use?  What should be represented?
  • What is Minimum Sufficient Business Integration (MSBI) and when should this method be used?
  • Step-by-step instructions for the MSBI method and outputs produced
  • Testing and Landing the core diagram in your business and governance processes


This will likely take a few days, and I’d like to take a few minutes to describe each of these topics.  The talk lasted 45 minutes (at a wildly accelerated pace).  I plan to provide a better, albeit slower, set of information for the folks who read this blog.
