What you want is enumerate:

\begin{enumerate}
\item \textbf{Business}, how to make profit from your products.
\item \textbf{Architecture}, technical means to build the software.
\item \textbf{Process}, roles, responsibilities, and relationships within software development.
\item \textbf{Organization}, actual mapping of roles and responsibilities to organizational structures.
\end{enumerate}

@Skipper07, if you did as above I seriously doubt you still have the same problem. Look at the link to see the usage of enumerate. Are you sure you used enumerate and not description? –  tiago Nov 21 '12 at 7:42
