Learn how to become a business-driven Enterprise Architect using  proven methods and techniques that were acquired over a 30-year IMIT Career!

Enterprise Architecture is the process of change.

Business drives change... therefore Enterprise Architecture must be business-driven.

I have created this course to showcase what is involved in starting up and implementing an EA Practice. 

This course will step you through the first year of implementing an EA Practice, starting with how to work with the senior executives to understand their visions.  It is so important to start with one clear direction, a direction endorsed and supported by the full senior executive team. 

Once the direction is set this course will walk you through how to start influencing the way change happens.  The goal is to start shifting the organization from a reactive/fire fighting position to one where changes happen proactively.

The final piece to this course is how you continue to evolve the organization while not impacting current operations.  To me this has got to be the hardest thing for every organization I have ever worked with.  Architecting an organization is not like architecting a building.  You don't create one static design and move in once complete, you have to continue to support your clients.  This course will explain how I have helped countless organizations do just that.

Who this course is for:

  • Architects
  • Analysts
  • CIO
  • Manager
  • Anyone interested in learning about EA
