Enterprise Architects are valued for their impact on business results. EA frameworks, methods and tools provide some essential foundations for achieving that impact. Success depends on an EA leadership strategy that is tuned to the organizational culture, integrated with the investment process, and driving architectural investments.

This intensive two-day course explores successful leadership strategies for EA. It includes EA’s value proposition and scope, how to measure an enterprise’s architectural performance, diagnosing where EA fits in the organizational culture, validating EA’s role in the investment process, and how to position architectural investments in the projects portfolio.

  • Benchmark your EA leadership strategy
