On People and Enterprise Architecture

Tackling people-concerns in architecture-development

About the Book

This anthology from the Tetradian weblog explores how to make sense of how people interact and interrelate with enterprise-architecture, and where people fit within the overall enterprise-story.

This book includes about 40 posts and 50 images from the weblog. These posts are split into three groups:

  • People-Themes: Theory - outlines some of the core theory about how to include people-themes within enterprise-architectures.
  • People-Themes: Practice - provides worked-examples on how to tackle people-themes in enterprise-architectures.
  • People-Themes: Big-Picture - shows how to adapt these principles and practices to people-themes that extend beyond the organisation and outward to the broader social-enterprise.
