There will never be enough Enterprise Architects.  They are uniquely-valuable, specialized, and scarce, and their contributions come through their leadership of others.  This intensive and interactive workshop focuses on the strategies that Enterprise Architects use to choose their most productive interventions and maximize their success.

How Enterprise Architects choose to invest their time and skills shapes the value of Enterprise Architecture (EA).  Their interventions demonstrate, in practice, EA’s positive and durable impacts – on the changes people conceive of and design, on the investment projects that deliver those changes, and on the enterprise’s overall performance.

Enterprises constantly redesign themselves.  Being an Enterprise Architect is different from many other kinds of architect. In an enterprise, anyone, at any time can have an architectural idea.  Executives make architectural investments, whether they know it or not.  Helping people to distinguish architectural ideas and investments from all the non-architectural ones is a vital reason why enterprises need architects.

Enterprise Architects are leaders, influences and facilitators.  They work with a scope that is specific to the enterprise goals, are tuned-in to the organizational culture, and are guided by measures of the enterprise’s structural performance.  They grow their influence through their role in the investment process, their win-win network, and their leadership of others.

  • Tune the Enterprise Architect’s strategy to the organizational culture
  • Validate Enterprise Architecture’s role in the investment process
