EA Purpose and Business CycleDownload the Practitioner's Guide. TOGAF provides essential scaffolding for enterprise architecture. The Practitioner's Guide takes universal concepts and illuminates how to use them to deliver enterprise architecture.

Consistent guidance for EA Practitioners. Practical, every-day use of the TOGAF framework. We built the Practitioner's Guide around the reality that enterprise architects serve different purposes.

We use TOGAF. We use TOGAF as a framework, not a cookbook. It is a framework of essential concepts. This point is important for EA Practitioners putting TOGAF to use.

The EA Practitioner is the person tasked to develop, maintain, and use an EA. Choice of the term Practitioner is deliberate, reflecting the role, rather than one of the myriad job titles in an Enterprise the Practitioner may have.

The Practitioner's Guide

Download the Practitioners GuideThe Practitioner's Guide takes TOGAF universal concepts and applies them to four standard purposes of for developing enterprise architecture.

Organizations examine change in terms of

  • strategy
  • portfolio
  • project
  • solution delivery

Conexiam's EA Capability Practice wrote the Practitioner's Guide. Our proven approach of delivering high-quality enterprise architecture was converted to the Practitioner's Guide. We replaced our proprietary practices, Navigate and Predictable EA, with generalized approaches. For example, in Section 5.1 - What to Expect in a Well-Run Architecture Repository, we translated our Avolution ABACU implementation of Conexiam Navigate, and SharePoint into a description aligned with TOGAF's EA Repository model. We expect you will have different tools, but you need to understand what a compliance assessment is, and where you will use on to refresh a Portfolio Architecture.

Primary Audience

We wrote the Practitioner's Guide for an Enterprise Architect. We balance the advice between how you will approach your duties and what support you should expect from your EA Team.
