To develop your team, start with your context.

The Embarrassing Question

Are you being re-stood up or re-booted?

We start here. How we approach developing your team is completely different. If your team is being re-booted, you need to know why. How did your predecessor fail? What is the driving force behind the improvement?

Boundary of your Enterprise

What is the boundary encompassed by the Enterprise Architecture and EA Capability?

Know your scope. Do you cover all of your organization? A department? A set of organizations with a common mission? Your entire core supply chain?

How we will design your EA Team is different.

EA Team's purpose

What questions must you answer?

EA Team PurposeHigh functioning EA Teams deliver value. Value is different for different organizations.

Special Circumstances

Are you facing special circumstances?

What is your Enterprise

What is the boundary of your Enterprise? Off-the-cuff, it sounds like a simple question to answer. For most EA Teams the question is hard. To answer you need to think about domains, your business operating model, and who you serve.

What is your EA Team Purpose

Everything hangs off what your stakeholders want from an EA Team.

At our broadest, the EA Team will support strategy, portfolio, project, and solution delivery. They address the future state of the business information systems and infrastructure architecture. In this broad case, everything is a variable. The team is supporting the directional statements of the enterprise and frames key solutions. Very few teams have this scope.

At the other extreme, we have the classic IT-oriented architecture team. They’re primarily focused on the delivery of enterprise IT platforms, enterprise applications and infrastructure. The business and objectives are pre-defined. Or, as we say, a constant in the equation.

Your team will live somewhere between these extremes.
