Enterprise Architecture Capability ModelDownload the Leader's Guide. Every EA Team must be configured. Without deliberate configuration, you are hoping random action will build a optimized complex business capability.

The guide uses the comprehensive and consistent guidance for EA Leaders to design their EA Team developed by Conexiam Consulting. The Leader's Guide brings the concepts and generic constructs in the TOGAF framework to life. The Leader's Guide foundation is based on the Navigate EA Capability Reference Architecture.

We use TOGAF as a framework, not a cookbook. It is a framework of essential concepts. This point is important for EA Leaders using TOGAF as a framework to design their EA Team.

Use the same concept.
Not the same technique, not the same template, not the same process.

Just the same concept.

Leader's Guide

Download the Leaders GuideThe Leader's Guide takes universal TOGAF concepts. It breaks apart the TOGAF ADM Preliminary Phase into a broad set of questions. The questions have actionable guidance on developing an EA Team.

Conexiam's EA Capability Practice wrote the Leader's Guide. Our proven approach of developing high-functioning EA Teams was converted to the Leader's Guide. We replaced our proprietary practices, Navigate and Predictable EA, with generalized approaches. For example, in Chapter 8 - Customization of Architecture Contents, we provided the design guidance we used to build Conexiam Navigate. While we are very proud of Navigate, we expect that you may choose a very different approach. You should ensure that your architecture modelling approach and repository answers the questions your EA Team answers.

Primary Audience

The Leader's Guide is written for EA Team Leaders. The advice is about building the right enterprise architecture team for your organization.
