Enterprise Architecture Capability Workshop
Predictable EA Capability Workshops identify the purpose, objectives and organizational model of a successful EA team. This foundation builds your roadmap to a high-functioning EA Team.
Conexiam’s EA Capability Workshop is offered in three versions: 1 day, 5 days, and 10 days.
We designed the EA Capability Workshop to identify the purpose, objectives and organizational model of a successful EA team. With that knowledge rapidly build a roadmap to creating the EA team that meets the needs, structure and objectives of the organization.
Purpose of Enterprise Architecture Team
We base the EA Capability Workshop on our EA Capability Model. Our experience has shown that there no one right structure, purpose or design for an EA Team.
Predictable EA Workshops
Workshop balance training and consulting.
When consulting, we focus on delivering useful enterprise architecture. When training, we focus on developing the ability of your team to do the work independently.
In a workshop, we address a challenge faced by your team with your team. We balance learning and doing by systematically addressing a significant challenge.
There is no single correct scope, level of detail, or purpose for an EA. Your EA team must be aligned to the purpose your organization wants to use EA for.
Typically, there are four broad purposes of an EA Capability:
EA to support Strategy: provide an end-to-end target architecture, and develop roadmaps of change over longer time periods. In this context, architecture is used to identify change initiatives and supporting portfolio and programs.
EA to support Portfolio: Deliver EA to support cross-functional, multi-phase, and multi-project change initiatives. In this context, architecture is used to identify projects, set their terms of reference, align their approaches, identify synergies, and govern their execution.
EA to support Project: Deliver EA to support the Enterprise’s project delivery method to assure compliance with architectural governance, and to support the integration and alignment between projects.
EA to support Solution Deployment: Deliver EA that is used to support solution deployment by defining how the change will be designed and delivered, and finally, act as a governance framework for change
There is no single correct scope, level of detail, or purpose for an EA.
Your EA team must be aligned to the purpose your organization wants.
Configuration provides alignment between an organization’s existing architecture deliverables, EA & governance processes, and its organizational model.
Typically EA Capability workshops are held in preparation of a major initiative, or when one is crashing & burning. It is more successful to hold the workshop in preparation for a major initiative.
Foundation of Workshop
Conexiam’s EA Capability Workshop is built around executing the Leaders' approach to establishing an EA Capability. We also use the Navigate EA Capability Reference Atlas.
