What I found interesting is that Alan used the same words I have been using in our EA practice for the past two years. Simply boiled down, Enterprise Architecture is about two things :
- Doing the Right Things – using EA to support Governance so that the right things are done to support our Education, Research and Business mandates
- Doing Things Right – using EA to improve our planning, manage complexity and encompass best practices like ITIL for IT Service Manangement
Thank you Alan for a great post and I hope you are good with me leveraging your final diagram in my organization.
