Module 0: Welcome to TOGAF Business Architecture Foundation
Module zero introduces you to the course main features, learning plan, aims and objectives, and structure. It also offers a course guide, diagram packs, a further reading and links document and links to download essential copies of the framework publications.

Module 1: Introduction and concepts
Module 1 provides an overview of Enterprise Architecture, its purpose and benefits. It introduces many core concepts of the TOGAF Standard, including an initial outline of the Architecture Development Method (ADM).

Module 2: Introduction to the ADM
Module 2 explains the basic structure of the ADM and the governance and scoping of Enterprise Architecture. It also explains the purpose and objectives of the Preliminary Phase and Phases A and B and how iteration is applied to the ADM.

Module 3: Business modeling
Module 3 defines what a business model is and describes different example representations. It explains the typical contents of a business model, using the nine building blocks of the business model canvas as an example. The module also explains the relationship between business models and Business Architecture, how business models can be used according to the TOGAF Standard and why business model innovation should be approached in a structured manner.

Module 4: Business capabilities
Module 4 introduces the concept of business capabilities, describing what a business capability is, how it can be defined and what its components are. It also describes business capability maps and explains the business capability mapping approach, along with how business capabilities can be mapped to other business perspectives.

Module 5: Value streams
Module 5 describes different approaches to value analysis, including value streams, value chains, value networks and Lean value streams. It explains the use of value streams in Business Architecture and the relationship of value streams to other Business Architecture concepts. It also explains how a value stream is defined and how it can be decomposed to a value stream stage. Finally, we discover how value streams and value stream stages can be mapped to business capabilities, using an example.

Module 6: Business scenarios
Module 6 describes what a TOGAF Business Scenario is, its purpose and benefits, and explains where TOGAF Business Scenarios are used in the ADM. The module also explains how to develop and validate a TOGAF Business Scenario and includes a description of where business capabilities and value streams are used for this purpose.

Module 7: Information and organization mapping
Module 7 begins by describing Information Maps along with their impact and benefits. It explains the relationships of Information Maps to other Business Architecture concepts and to data models and how Information Maps can be used with the TOGAF ADM.
The module moves on to describe Organization Maps, outlining their impact and benefits and explaining how they are different to organization charts. It also explains the relationships of Organization Maps to other domains and how Organization Maps can be used with the TOGAF ADM.

Module 8: Applying Business Architecture techniques within the TOGAF ADM
Module 8 explains how Business Architecture concepts (business capabilities, value streams, and organization maps) are used in creating the Architecture Vision in Phase A. It also explains the approach to creating the Business Architecture in Phase B. The module then explains the application of Business Architecture concepts (business capabilities, values streams, organization maps, information maps, and modeling techniques) in Phase B.

Module 9: Practice exam
This module contains a practice exam provided by The Open Group.

Module 10: TOGAF Business Architecture: Foundation wrap-up
Module 10 provides information on booking the exam and other courses of interest.
