Be Structured is a methodology for the realization of customer solutions with the Be Informed business process platform, mainly by modeling. The methodology can be used for single solutions as well as for enterprise-wide infrastructures and can be trimmed for large and small scale usage.
The method’s content:
- is strongly focused on knowledge specific topics
- puts less emphasis on more traditional IT development, project management and business change management practices
- describes the implementation aspects of Be Informed, while recognizing that other aspects such as process, organization and culture are crucial too
Any Be Informed implementation should follow the same process, consisting of smoothed, standardized paths with known activities. But there are also events that can’t be tamed by a merely routine approach. They require creativity and exploring alternatives off the beaten tracks. There are also new insights and new opportunities as well as challenges we have to tackle when they emerge. Be Structured also provides a framework and navigation aids for these discovery trips.
Be Structured recognizes that there are multiple points of view to any Be Informed implementation. These points of view can be role-based, including roles such as architect, business analyst and tester. They can also be concern-based, for concerns such as security, agility or quality.
Be Structured is complementary to various well-known development, compliance and architecture frameworks, including ITIL, Cobit, Prince II, RUP, TOGAF, Zachman, SCRUM, Cogniam, DEMO and Pronto.
