Zachman Enterprise Architecture: Modelling Workshop Zachman Certification
Registration and Fees
Enterprise Architecture is fundamental for enabling an enterprise to assimilate internal changes in response to the external dynamics and uncertainties of the information age environment. It not only constitutes a baseline for managing change, but also provides the mechanism by which the reality of the enterprise and its systems can be aligned with management intentions.
This newly revised four day seminar and workshop, based on the recently released Zachman Framework V3.0, for the first time incorporates actual modelling experience. The modelling workshop is based on actual Enterprise experience and is designed to give the participants hands-on experience creating both “Primitive” (architecture) models as well as “Composite” (implementation) models.
The seminar and workshop will prepare delegates for both levels of the Zachman Certified- Enterprise Architect program: Zachman Certified™ - Enterprise Architect Associate (Level1) and Zachman Certified™ - Enterprise Architect Professional (Level 2).
The certification fee (both Level 1 & Level 2) is included in the registration fee. The “Zachman Certified – Enterprise Architect” examination is a two hour, on-line examination that upon passing, results in the award of Enterprise Architect Associate (Level 1) Certification. Delegates will then subsequently be awarded the Enterprise Architect Associate (Level 2) Certification upon submitting a case study.
This is a very exclusive certification program. If you want to understand the “Complexity & Contradiction” in Enterprise Architecture and are struggling to manage a non-adaptive enterprise and dysfunctional systems, this will be an important experience!

- Migrating from Legacy to Architecture
Workshop: Using Primitives to create horizontal Integration and Vertical Transformation
Case Study: Application Rationalization Using Primitives
Workshop: Creating Metrics and the Necessary Enterprise Models for Meeting Enterprise Goals
Workshop: Identify Framework Cells for Given Enterprise Problem Definitions
Strategies for Constraining the Modelling to Fit the Time Constraints
Mock Test: Preparation for the On-Line Certification Examination
The seminar is designed for enterprise professionals of every discipline including non-information disciplines as well as information disciplines. Although it is addressing technology issues, it is not a "technical" seminar. It addresses the subjects that both enterprise professionals and information professionals must understand to operate effectively in collaboration in the Information Age environment.
Further, the seminar is appropriate for both management and non-management professionals. For management it clarifies the issues for decision purposes and enables more meaningful dialogue with and among the technology community. For operations professionals, it establishes the context for developing improved approaches and implementation strategies.
Typical delegates include:
- Chief Information Officers
- Information Systems Management
- Data, Applications, Technology Management
- Enterprise Architects
- Data, Applications, Technology Architects
- Business Architects
- Business, Systems Analysts
- Strategic Planners
- Domain / Business knowledge.
- Experience in running and managing a department or business unit.
- Ability to map the domain specific language (terminology) to the architecture specific language.
- Architecture specification principles such as abstraction, refinement, composition, modelling, etc.
- Experience in creating models (free hand or using a tool like MS Office or UML/BPMN).
John A. Zachman is the originator of the "Framework for Enterprise Architecture" which has received broad acceptance around the world as an integrative framework, or "periodic table" of descriptive representations for Enterprises. He is not only known for this work on Enterprise Architecture, but is also known for his early contributions to IBM's Information Strategy methodology as well as to their Executive team planning techniques.
Mr. Zachman retired from IBM in 1990, having served them for 26 years. He is Chief Executive Officer of Zachman International, an Enterprise dedicated to the advancement of the state of the art in Enterprise Architecture in support of Enterprise Engineering and Manufacturing. He has written over 60 major articles on the subject. His website is www.Zachman.com
Director of FEAC Education Operations, Cort Coghill is an industry professional with over 24 years of witnessing enterprise and project success as well as disorder. He has served in diverse roles during his career to include the U.S. Armed Services, U.S. Federal Civil Service and presently in the commercial sector in the Research and Development field. As a Zachman Certified Enterprise Architect (ZCEA) and EA educator he posses a broad appreciation for the challenges faced by individuals and organizations in trying to plan and collaborate for success. As a certified project manager, he engages on a broad range of projects both in size and scope. Cort is a long time Faculty member at The FEAC Institute, where he teaches both FEAF and DoDAF Certifications. Cort is one of the very few Zachman Certified Enterprise Architect Educators (Level 4) in the world.
