Why should you take this course?
Candidates of this course will be exposed to most of the challenges faced when setting up an Enterprise Architecture Practice.
It provides the background and exposure to some well-known subjects that are often glossed over by the other well-known Enterprise Architecture frameworks. The areas covered have been contributed by practitioners on the ground doing this kind to work. It also includes some areas that are useful to know and use but which are not standard run-of-the-mill Enterprise Architecture techniques.
Integration is positioned against implementation as an approach that requires consideration of your existing organization, culture, strategy, skills, structures and tools so that you can make informed choices about how to begin rather than implementing blindly from a standard.
The Enterprise Architecture Practice is presented from different perspectives such as architecture demand and supply, the interactions of strategy, and architecture and delivery with some considerable focus on the operating and engagement model approaches that should be integral to the Enterprise Architecture Practice to be effective.
Other areas that are immediately useful to the Enterprise Architecture are the capability assessment and looking at how the Enterprise Architecture Practice delivers to the organization by defining Enterprise Architecture capabilities and the services necessary to actually deliver.
Standards and principles are considered in depth as a core part of the effective Enterprise Architecture Practice with a number of processes and approaches discussed that can be utilized immediately in your Enterprise Architecture Practice.
Lastly the course addresses an important area that is often just assumed effective that of communications strategy and execution and the construction of an Enterprise Architecture charter which can be used to establish the position and authority of the Enterprise Architecture Practice.
