Value, values and effectiveness

The underlying core for architectures

About the Book

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.
