How the TOGAF® Standard Enables Agility

The Open Group TOGAF Standard Version 9.2 was published April 16, 2018. A common misconception voiced by several people at that time was that Enterprise Architecture in general and the TOGAF Standard are barriers to enterprise agility.

This paper addresses that misconception by reference to specific sections of the standard; it does not assume the adoption of any specific agile method.

Enterprise Architecture – Getting Started on an Enterprise Architecture Project!

One of the most frequent set of questions I get are about getting started on an enterprise architecture project.  How do we begin? What do we need to do first, third, next? My first reactionto this question is usually “please don’t start by don’t asking the client what they want the Enterprise Architecture to do?” I have seen this and it really puts clients off. For a more constructive response I have directed folk to the TOGAF® ADM and the various guides in the TOGAF® Library. Though usually thankful, that direction begets something like “thanks for that, but I was just wondering if I can get some practical tips right now.” I thought this might be a useful topic for a blog.
