Katherine (Kit) Shelton from the Department of Human Services (DHS) for the State of Minnesota is applying business architecture to help DHS transform service delivery by coordinating distributed work to integrate services and transition to a product operating model. She and two other Enterprise Business Architects in the Agency Effectiveness Administration lead a cross-functional team of business experts from all over the department to apply shared principles and common standards across business units to integrate multiple perspectives into a single enterprise-wide business framework.
