EA’s, what would you say if you had a chance to talk to a group of BA’s?

I have the honour to speak to the International Institute of Business Analysis (Vancouver, BC, Canada Chapter) tomorrow at a Lunch and Learn session.

I will be speaking about how we built a Strategic Practice group that uses EA as the framework to guide other practices like Security, Program Management and of course Business Analysis.  I will use the EA Model, I talked about in an older post to position how EA and BA fit for our organization.

Since we are still early in our development of these horizontal methodologies, I will be talking about how BAs’ requirements gathering become the source for our solutions architecture work. Over time, I hope we can grow our Business Analysis practice into a Business Architecture practice.

So if you had a chance to talk to a captive audience of BA’s, what would you say?
