About the Bundle
The ‘Big-picture Enterprise Architecture’ bundle: Using architectures out to global scale.
How might you re-use your existing enterprise-architecture toolkit to tackle big-picture issues all the way out to global scale? This set of articles from the Tetradian weblog shows you how and why to do that.
The bundle includes the following seven ebooks:

- Big-picture: The hard challenges (32 posts)
Allowing for some overlap between anthologies, the overall bundle includes about 250 articles, adding up to 2286 PDF pages.
The Big Picture for Enterprise Architecture
Applying architecture to global challenges
This anthology from the Tetradian weblog explores how enterprise-architecture and other related disciplines can apply at the 'really-big-picture' scale - not just within a single organisation at the present, but all the way out to the entire planet over any period of time.
This book includes about 40 posts and 50 images from the weblog. These posts are split into six sections:
- Big-Picture: The Big-Picture - presents some of the defining themes in RBPEA ('Really-Big-Picture Enterprise-Architecture').
- Big-Picture: Principles and Fundamentals - introduces fundamental concepts and guiding-principles for use in exploring big-picture issues.
- Big-Picture: Methods - focusses on methods that we can use or adapt to work on the big-picture.
- Big-Picture: Society - reviews examples of social challenges at a broader, big-picture scope and scale.
- Big-Picture: Rights and Responsibilities - uses the big-picture view to guide a rethink about relationships between rights and responsibilities.
- Big-Picture: Possession - explores the large-scale and long-term damage caused by concepts of possession.
On People and Enterprise Architecture
Tackling people-concerns in architecture-development
This anthology from the Tetradian weblog explores how to make sense of how people interact and interrelate with enterprise-architecture, and where people fit within the overall enterprise-story.
This book includes about 40 posts and 50 images from the weblog. These posts are split into three groups:
- People-Themes: Theory - outlines some of the core theory about how to include people-themes within enterprise-architectures.
- People-Themes: Practice - provides worked-examples on how to tackle people-themes in enterprise-architectures.
- People-Themes: Big-Picture - shows how to adapt these principles and practices to people-themes that extend beyond the organisation and outward to the broader social-enterprise.
On Economics and Enterprise Architecture
How economics and architectures interact
This anthology from the Tetradian weblog explores how economics and enterprise architectures interrelate with each other, in business, in society, and with the wider world.
This book includes about 40 posts and 40 images from the weblog. These posts are split into six groups:
- Economics and Architecture: On Architectures - shows how architecture outlines key flaws in economics, and what it can do to help address them.
- Economics and Architecture: Business - illustrates how economics-level issues can impact everyday business.
- Economics and Architecture: Money - assesses how perspectives on money, price and value can both introduce useful ideas or constrain new possibilities.
- Economics and Architecture: Society - uses architectures-methods to explore effects of current economics at whole-of-society levels.
- Economics and Architecture: Futures - reviews economics implications highlighted by futures-analysis.
- Economics and Architecture: Beyond Money - explores an architecture-based thought-experiment on a form of economics that does not need money to function.
On futures and Enterprise Architecture
How to use futures methods in architectures
This anthology from the Tetradian weblog focusses on futures, and particularly the techniques and methods needed to guide change for an individual organisation, for a broader shared enterprise, or at a more global big-picture scale, and also across any timescale that may be required.
This book includes about 40 posts and 70 images from the weblog. These posts are split into four groups:
- Futures: Methods - outlines some of the methods and concerns in futures-work for architectures.
- Futures: Architectures - explore a range of issues where futures concerns intersect with architectures in a business context.
- Futures: Politics - uses futures-methods to identify a swathe of fundamental flaws in many current concepts of politics and society, and suggest what can be done to resolve those flaws.
- Futures: Assessments - applies futures-methods to assess potential challenges and options in broader social change, and also in architecture itself.
On power and enterprise architecture
Exploring how power-issues affect architectures
This anthology from the Tetradian weblog tackles the issues around power and responsibility - or lack of them - and how these affect not just our architectures and organisations but society as a whole.
This book includes about 40 posts and 50 images from the weblog. These posts are split into four groups:
- Power and Society: Responsibilities and Rights - assesses the relationships between rights and responsibilities, and how concepts of power underpin both.
- Power and Society: Architecture and Responsibility - reviews how issues around power and responsibility can impact on the requirements and concerns for our architectures.
- Power and Society: Irresponsibility - outlines the challenges that arise when individuals, organisations, industries or entire societies align around a systematic and often intentional irresponsibility.
- Power and Society: Power and the Person - explores how power-issues affect the individual, particularly in the context of work
Value, values and effectiveness
The underlying core for architectures
This anthology from the Tetradian weblog explores the nature of value and its relationship with the role of enterprise architecture.
This book includes about 35 posts and 65 images from the weblog. These posts are split into four groups:
- Value and Values - outlines the practical meaning of ‘value’ and the distinctions between ‘value’ and ‘values’.
- Values and Quality - provides an overview of quality as an expression of values, and how to use this in enterprise architecture.
- Economics and Value - describes how money is only one subset of value, and the implications of this fact for enterprise architecture and business architecture.
- Effectiveness and Value - shows how values determine the practical meaning of ‘effectiveness’, and how effectiveness supports value in the enterprise.
Big-picture: The hard challenges
Challenging perspectives on politics and society
This anthology from the Tetradian weblog demonstrates how whole-enterprise architecture methods can be used to explore the hard-challenges in politics, economics and society.
This book includes about 35 posts and 80 images from the weblog. These posts are split into three groups:
- Big-Picture: Four Principles - presents a multi-part series on ‘Four principles for a sane society’.
- Big-Picture: Disservices - considers the impacts at a broader-scope level of the dysfunctional counterpart to services, and what to do about them.
- Big-Picture: Society and Gender - applies a lens of gender as a worked-example to assess societal impacts of purported ‘rights’ at a big-picture level.
