Ep. 31 - Security Architecture: Rick Smith

10/3/2022
Updating the "plumbing" is not sexy. Looking at measures being put in place to avoid the worst case or deal with it when it happens is not fancy. Educating people and reminding them on being alert is exhausting. However, the topic of Security and Security Architecture is one of the most important things to do, now that we outgrow the industrial age and move into the information age. In this episode of the What's Your Baseline Podcast we are talking with Rick Smith about Security...

Ep. 29 - Open Source: Avi Ghosh

9/5/2022
It is interesting to see how a "fringe idea" became mainstream within just a few years and everyone of us is using the outcome of it in our daily lives (mostly without knowing it - or have you thought what runs your car radio or the datacenter of your preferred search engine?). But another aspect that still has to gain traction of the Open Source movement is the cultural aspect. How do you develop a SW that is used by billions of people in an all volunteer organization? The key ingredient...

A few months ago we had an initial look at how to manage and implement change in our conversation with Caspar Jans (in Episode 16) and we are continuing that series with an excellent conversation with Wings Liang about Quality Excellence and how organizations need to "shift left" and can gain competitive advantage by changing their perspective. Wings helps organizations pave the road to the future by building high-performance teams, aligning organizational structure, shifting colleague...

Ep. 26 - Communicating the value of architecture: Laurie Kelly

7/25/2022
One of the biggest problems of architecture groups was (is?) that they are doing good work, but that will not be recognized by others. One of the causes for that is that their repository and artifacts have almost no visibility outside of their group. To mitigate this situation, we are speaking with Laurie Kelly about how to communicate the value of architecture in today's episode of the What's Your Baseline Podcast. Laurie is the Global Director for Demand Generation at Ardoq, an Enterprise...

WYB Shorts 7 - Process empathy

6/20/2022
People. For better or worse a lot of the topics in EA and BPM center around people. These are the reasons why we do things (customers who pay for our goods and services), who does the work (employees and partners), or why processes and architectures even exist in the first place. In this What's Your Baseline Shorts, we are talking about process empathy: Please reach out to us by either sending an email to hello@whatsyourbaseline.com or leaving us a voice message by clicking here.

Ep. 24 - Task Mining & RPA: Kevin Scully and Ziv Ilan

6/13/2022
Task Mining and RPA are things that are often overlooked when looking at Process Mining. This can leave a big hole in the discovered process and therefore create an incomplete analysis result.

Ep. 23 - How to create a business case

5/30/2022
Welcome to another episode of our podcast. Today's topic is about creating a formal business case as part of the change process. Creating a business case document can be a challenge for someone who has not done that before, and one might think that this is a single-person activity. Nothing could be further from the truth - in our experience, a good business case document is the result of collaboration between multiple people in your organization (and vendors) that happens in multiple...

Ep. 19 - Interacting with analysts: Amardeep Modi

4/4/2022
Analysts are the mystical wizards of the tech industry. Their reports and analysis results shape markets and sometimes also the fates of organizations that play in that market.
