Both the Personal Mastery by Architecting™ and Architecting for Managers™ disciplines are designed to offer an unique possibility to people and organisations based on the idea of bridges.
A bridges is in a simply sense anything (abstract or concrete) that two or more people, communities are aware of, or use for communication, collaboration, coordination and integration of their work.
The benefit of identifying, describing, building capacity for, and using bridges objects lies in their power to bridge what is going in two or more worlds. A few examples:
A Case Management System (a bridge) a Case (a bridge) integrate the work of people with many different functions and competences.
In management of larger portfolios of business, digital transformation efforts the idea's of benefit (a bridge) and outcome (a bridge are used to integrate work across projects.
A standard methodology (a bridge , or routine description (a bridge) can be adopted, modified, and configured differently by various organisational units.
A product structure (a bridge integrate work performed by marketing, design, production, and sales units.
An operating Model (a bridge) bridge market strategy and execution.
In the preceding examples we can see that bridges are of essential interest to an organisation and therefore to interweaving and architecting, i.e. they are, most of the times, salient and! As such they transcend the idea of blueprint which is the key deliverable in most traditional architecture approaches.
