Gene Leganza, Forrester VP Research wrote a post today titled “Babies, Bath Water, and Enterprise Architecture Maturity Models”. He gave an overview of why he discounted capability maturity models in the past as a technique for maturing EA. In the post, Gene wrote positively about the roadmap approach we use to plan, mature and assess our EA practice – our EA roadmap. I will keenly follow any comments and feedback from Gene’s blog post.
Here are the links to my earlier posts on our EA CMM approach that Gene referenced:
- Feb 2008 – How I use a CMM to plan, mature and assess our EA practice
- Feb 2009 – EA CMM Revisited and Renewed
Gene, thank you for commenting on our roadmap approach. I will be looking into the “Goal-Question-Metric” technique you mentioned to further refine our approach (and I will blog on it when I am ready!).
