Enterprise Architecture frameworks: Beyond IT

More frameworks and methods for EA

About the Book

This anthology from the Tetradian weblog focuses on tools and frameworks used in various forms of enterprise-architecture, typically beyond IT alone.

This book includes about 35 posts and 75 images from the weblog. These posts are split into eight small groups:

  • Frameworks: SCORE and Strategy - describes the purpose and usages of the SCORE tool for high-level planning and strategic review.
  • Frameworks: Change-Mapping - addresses specific aspects of the Change-mapping framework for guidance of change.
  • Frameworks: NOTES - introduces the NOTES framework, a story-oriented method for architecture development and validation.
  • Frameworks: The This Game - presents a game-like method for modelling the elements of an enterprise.
  • Frameworks: VPEC-T - discusses applications for the VPEC-T framework (Values, Policies, Events, Content, Trust) developed by Carl Bate and Nigel Green.
  • Frameworks: Spiral Dynamics - outlines a reframe for the Spiral Dynamics model of social-dynamics.
  • Frameworks: Other Frameworks - provides overviews and summaries for a variety of other tools and frameworks.
  • Frameworks: Related-Themes - explores a wide range of other topics related to frameworks and tools for architectures.
