About the Book
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.
