EA Culture in Government of Canada

July 15, 2015

The Government of Canada has established enterprise architecture practice as a government-wide culture. This has been achieved through a series of incremental changes to management practice over the past two decades. The result is a management approach that has strong enterprise architecture underpinnings. In this talk, we will explore the initiatives that have created this culture and explore the impact on both governance, management, and the practice of enterprise architecture in the Government of Canada.

Key Takeaways:

  • Not all enterprise architecture practice is done by enterprise architects
  • Effective enterprise architecture practice is done, not talked about
  • Enterprise architects must be bridge builders.
