Get the most out of your enterprise architecture

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 ?
  • ...

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.
