As the saying goes, you don’t know what you don’t know! It is easy to theorize and construct elaborate frameworks but making things happen on the ground is always a different story. This is where pragmatism, or practicality, reins supreme. In this day and age your efforts must add value to the organization and move it forward.
Having worked in the field of Strategy & Enterprise Architecture for many years across organizations I have had my fair share of false starts and failures. Interestingly organizations don’t share their EA successes, after all they know that EA provides a strategic and competitive advantage and they will not give that away.
In this Prezi (presentation) you will find lessons learned from boots on the ground that can help you overcome a number of challenges when setting up and running an EA practice. I look forward to hear about your successes and failures with EA on LinkedIn, Twitter, and this site.
