For strategists, enterprise architects and others, one of the hardest tasks is we face is mapping the enterprise in a form that creates and supports a sense of the whole as a whole. And it’s a task that’s often made harder by the way in which so many current model-types seem only to fragment the view ever further.
This book introduces an alternate approach: we create consistency at every level by modelling the enterprise as services with the Enterprise Canvas. It’s a new model-type that can be used to describe just about anything in any part and at any level of the enterprise, and that acts as a consistent frame for all the other models that we need in our architectures. Yet it’s also simple enough to scribble on the back of a napkin - and engage all of our stakeholders in the enterprise-scale conversations we need.
This extended edition includes a new appendix on a simplified notation for Enterprise Canvas, suitable for use in enterprise-architecture toolsets.
Topics covered include:
