Why do we organize this workshop on advanced enterprise architecture ?

  FREE book with your participation in this 3-day workshop:

Coherency Management: Architecting the Enterprise for Alignment, Agility and Assurance

An enterprise architecture framework such as Scott Bernard's EA³ Cube, TOGAF or Zachman is a tool to align strategy, business and technology ("EA = S + B + T"). It is built up from many different artifacts, such as the Strategy Plan, SWOT analysis, Operating Scenarios, Process Models, Data Entity Schemas, Data Models, Use Cases, Investment Business Cases, Workforce plans, ...

But how do you use such an enterprise architecture, how do you run an EA team and EA competence center (EACC), and how do you improve the maturity of enterprise architecture throughout your company ? These topics are the key subjects of this workshop, and some of the typical questions that will be answered here are:

  • How can you show the advantages of having an enterprise architecture ? What is the added value of EA ?
  • Where and how do you start with building an enterprise architecture ?
  • What is the lifecycle of an EA ?
  • (How) Can you assess the maturity of your EA ?
  • What are the roles and responsibilities of an EA team and of the chief enterprise architect ?
  • How can you link EA to other governance processes such as capital planning, program management and HRM ?
  • How do you use EA in project management, outsourcing or with mergers & acquisitions ?
  • ...

About this Workshop on Advanced Enterprise Architecture:

This "Advanced EA Concepts" workshop builds upon prior knowledge of EA concepts and practices, e.g. gained in

  • the "Fundamentals of Enterprise Architecture" and
  • the "Applied Enterprise Architecture Concepts" workshops.

This specific workshop is intended to build expertise in managing EA programs, establishing/leading EA teams, winning EA work, delivering EA products, and using EA to improve mission performance. Although it is not absolutely necessary to have attended the 2 workshops above, it is required that participants understand the EA³ Cube, and have read the book on EA³ by Scott Bernard (we can send you a copy).

The course will also cover advanced concepts on linking EA to other governance processes, including capital planning, program management, security, and human resources management (HRM).

Following this workshop, participants will have an advanced understanding of EA concepts and practices, and should be able to more successfully establish and lead EA teams and projects in the public and private sector, as well as develop project proposals and gain/maintain customer and stakeholder confidence and support. This will result in improved EA program success, higher quality EA documentation products, improved communication with EA clients and stakeholders, and increased EA value delivery

At the end of the "Advanced Enterprise Architect Concepts" workshop, participants will receive an attendance certificate issued by I.T. Works and by EA Fellows.

About the Enterprise Architecture Certification Programme

  How to become a Certified Enterprise Architect ?

Register for the Fundamentals, Applied and Advanced EA workshop.

Are you looking to expand your knowledge of Enterprise Architecture (EA) ? Are you trying to control business and technology development projects ? But you don't know for sure if your line-of-business applications support your business goals ? Do you need to learn EA best practices, so that you can maximize the benefits of EA for your organization ?

If so, then the new Enterprise Architecture Certification Program, offered by EA Fellows and by Carnegie Mellon University's Institute for Software Research International (ISRI), one of the world's leading IT education and research centers, and organised by I.T. Works in Belgium, is the program for you. "It is an honour and a pleasure to launch the EA-certification programme developed by Carnegie Mellon University here in Europe. Over the past several years, the demand for EA-competencies in Europe has increased tremendously, and it is time to roll out professional certification here now", says Dr. John Gøtze, the Chief Editor of the Journal of Enterprise Architecture, and instructor of the certification courses.

This Enterprise Architecture certification program will give you the knowledge and skills you need to successfully implement an EA initiative in the public or private sector. You will learn EA concepts, best practices, and tools from experienced Carnegie Mellon certified instructors. The Certification Program is built from three intensive courses which provide a comprehensive development program for Enterprise Architects: the "Fundamentals of Enterprise Architecture" course, the "Applied Enterprise Architecture" course and this "Advanced Enterprise Architecture". You will attain "Certified Enterprise Architect" status after passing three intensive exams for each of these courses.
