This is a practical Course for working in the EA industry. Using a realistic case-study the learners get to know the Enterprise Architecture Processes laid out in the TOGAF 9 or 9.1 from Vision to completed Technology Architecture. Because it is impossible to be sure that disparate groups have common knowledge of any architecture tool, the workshop depends on manual skills, supported by BYOD technology. Thus the Course is focussed primarily on the Organization and Processes of two interactive EA projects and Learning what the correct descriptive artifacts might be in different circumstances.
The action of the learners is facilitated by a suitably experienced instructor who guides and pushes the progress – and acts as mentoris in loco for assumptions. The end result is a thorough appreciation of all the aspects of the TOGAF EA Process by all the specialists so that each can appreciate the necessary value-add from the other sub-disciplines to create a holistic outcome.
The advantages of, for example, astute stakeholder Management are explored amongst other techniques and guidelines. Much of the knowledge gained is implied by the actuality of conducting the exercise.
The Course does NOT consider TOGAF Phases E, F, G, H beyond discussing whether or not the Architectural Product is viable a basis for development and how to remedy if it is not.
