Concept: Business Scenarios and the TOGAF ADM
Main Description

Business scenarios figure most prominently in the initial phase of the Architecture Development Method (ADM), Architecture Vision, when they are used to define relevant business requirements, and to build consensus with business management and other stakeholders.

However, the business requirements are referred to throughout all phases of the ADM cycle, as illustrated in Figure 26-4.

Figure 26-4: Relevance of Requirements Throughout the ADM

Because business requirements are important throughout all phases of the ADM cycle, the business scenario technique has an important role to play in the TOGAF ADM, by ensuring that the business requirements themselves are complete and correct.
