About the Books
Creating a career in enterprise-architecture
Theory, roles and practice
Creating a career in enterprise-architecture
This anthology from the Tetradian weblog provides overviews and commentary on how to develop a career in enterprise-architecture, business-architecture and related fields, and on the various roles that apply in those fields. It is intended to be a useful introduction for newcomers to enterprise-architecture.
This book includes about 30 posts and 30 images from the weblog. These posts are split into two main groups:
- Architecture as Career - offers practical guidance for anyone interested in developing a career in enterprise-architecture or any of the related disciplines.
- Architecture Roles - describes the different roles across the overall architecture domains, what they each do, and how they link together across the whole to support effective change.
More basics for enterprise architecture
Principles, methods, checklists and more
This anthology from the Tetradian weblog provides essential information on enterprise-architecture and related disciplines. It covers a wide range of themes across the entire scope of the domain, and is likely to be particularly useful for newcomers to the field.
The book includes about 40 posts and 85 images from the weblog. These posts are split into six groups:
- Basics: Enterprise and Organisation - clarifies the distinctions between ‘enterprise’ and ‘organisation’, and hence what ‘enterprise-architecture’ should mean in practice.
- Basics: Architecture and Design - shows how and why to differentiate between architecture and design, and the different roles they play in the overall process of change.
- Basics: Method - presents methods for various specific tasks in architectures, their purpose, and how and why they add value to the overall process of change.
- Basics: Architecture In Miniature - illustrates how enterprise-architecture principles and methods can be useful right down at the small-project level.
- Basics: Checklists - shows how to use checklists to support architecture and design.
- Basics: Terms and Definitions - provides clarity on terms and definitions used in enterprise-architecture.
More key concepts for enterprise architecture
Practical support for architecture discipline
This anthology from the Tetradian weblog provides a curated collection of posts that cover a range of concepts to guide sensemaking and decision-making in enterprise-architecture and the like. Most of these posts are unique to this anthology, and have not been included elsewhere in the series.
This book includes about 35 posts and 70 images from the weblog. These posts are split into three groups:
- Concepts: Basics - outlines essential concepts for the earlier stages in skills-development for architectures.
- Concepts: General - illustrates core concepts that apply across the overall architecture-space, from IT-architectures to whole-enterprise architecture and beyond.
- Concepts: Complexity - assesses concepts that apply specifically to complex issues.
On enterprise-architecture practice
Concepts and guidance to underpin practice
This anthology from the Tetradian weblog explores core principles and guidance for real-world practice for enterprise-architecture and its related disciplines.
This book includes about 40 posts and 50 images from the weblog. These posts are split into two groups:
- Practice: Essential Principles - outlines some essential guiding-principles for working on enterprise-architectures and more.
- Practice: Guidance - presents practical guidelines and guidance for use in change-projects of all kinds.
More on practice for Enterprise Architecture
Roles, skills, engagement and problem-issues
This anthology from the Tetradian weblog explores more about real-world practice for enterprise-architecture and its related disciplines.
This book includes about 35 posts and 40 images from the weblog. These posts are split into four groups:
- Practice: Roles and Skills - assesses the various types and needs for skills in architecture practice and more.
- Practice: Engagement - summarises the challenges of engaging stakeholders and others in the processes of change, and practical tools and tactics to help that happen.
- Practice: Influences - suggests examples of elements and concerns that can influence architecture practice in various ways.
- Practice: Mispractice - describes examples of flawed discipline and poor practice that can or do cause damage to change-projects and to architecture itself.
Worked-Examples for EA Practice
Decision-making in whole-enterprise architecture
This anthology from the Tetradian weblog provides practical, real-world examples of the thinking required to tackle architecture-issues, before diving down into the specific details of implementation.
This book includes roughly thirty-five posts and seventy images from the weblog. These posts are split into two groups:
- Everyday Challenges - outlines typical processes and checks - often in step-by-step form - that are likely to be useful in tackling routine architecture-challenges.
