Effectuating public service innovation for better citizen outcomes is a culmination of clear vision, enabling policies, efficient modern operations, smarter technology, and measurable goals amalgamated into a holistic construct. Government Enterprise Architecture is defined as: a whole of government approach to support government ecosystems by transcending boundaries for delivering services in a coordinated, efficient, and equitable manner.
Many governments are revitalizing public administration, overhauling public management, fostering inclusive leadership, and moving their public services to become more efficient, transparent, and accountable.
I was delighted to attend another one of The Open Group TOGAF® User Group meetings. This one was held in London on April 18, 2018 with great interactions between users of the TOGAF Standard, experts, and staff of The Open Group. Attendees got that chance to Share experiences, be Enlightened by news, and Engage in the development process by expressing needs – i.e. to SEE TOGAF a little differently.
