Paul Arthur Bodine

“Focused on identifying problems quickly and helping implement solutions that move companies forward fast. Paul’s value is beyond measure”

Flexible Business Architecture training to meet your needs and schedule.

Paul’s goal is to train emerging business leaders and top business designers, those who will lead the teams that take on the most important needs with the greatest ambiguity and the most riding on finding and implementing a solution in the shortest amount of time. It is an elite program modelled after the university education of a building architect, an educational system like that supporting medicine and the law, that has evolved over hundreds of years.

At its core is the design studio, in which students are given project statements (business cases) for which they are to design a building that not only meets the criteria on a checklist basis, but also which has an architectural structure and beauty (user-friendly interface) to it. Students present their designs to a jury of licensed architects who provide the students with insights based on their professional experience, and practice selling their designs to clients, a necessary skill for every working architect.

The design studio is surrounded with engineering courses (structural, plumbing, heating, electrical, fire supression, etc.) and contextual courses (culture, art, history, theory, zoning and codes, construction, urban planning, economics, real estate, etc.).

The core of Paul’s business architecture training, like the design studio, is problem-solving activity based on solving real-world business problems drawn either from published case studies or, better, working with live clients to solve real corporate challenges. Working with live clients provides the students with not only a richer problem to solve, but also the experience that only comes from working with a real client with real needs  and real sensitivities and reactions in real time. Paul includes two additional content sets in his course: a) enough of the tools and standards, subsystems and context information to be able to do their work, and b) techniques and rules-of-thumb for navigating the real world scenarios the students will encounter when they graduate.

Many of the learnings reflected in this business architecture training have been thoughtfully provided by past students who have gone on to assume important roles in their companies.
