The fundamentals of Enterprise Architecture (EA) - frameworks, methods and tools - equip Enterprise Architects for a career-long journey of achievements and professional development. From designing solutions and roadmaps to maximising EA’s contribution across the enterprise, the strategy for success depends on choosing the most effective interventions, influencing decisions, shaping investments, and measurably enhancing enterprise performance.
This intensive two-day course focuses on successful management strategies for Enterprise Architecture. It includes - for example – establishing EA’s value proposition, measuring the enterprise’s architectural performance, diagnosing the culture in which EA must succeed, and validating the enterprise’s process for investing in change. Using a fascinating and challenging case study, the workshop explores how to formulate a winning strategy for EA, and execute that strategy through each Enterprise Architect’s ‘play-or-pass’ choices.
Entirely based on first-hand experiences of Enterprise Architecture in practice, the course will help you to:
