“Doing the Right Things” and “Doing Things Right”

Alan Inglis wrote a great post about Enterprise Architecture. He put up a very good diagram linking Management to Delivery with Architecture bridging them.

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.
