This charter is an essential document for authorizing the creation of and setting goals for EA Principles Group.
- The EA Principles Group’s (EAPG) main purpose is to develop EA principles that succinctly communicate the organization’s intent on the use of IT and summarize a foundation of shared beliefs to guide IT decision making across the enterprise.
- Without a charter that assigns accountability and authority to this group, the development and implementation EA principles may fail.
- It is crucial that this chapter is approved by the highest placed IT governance body (e.g. IT Steering Committee) to ensure that the EA principles are followed by setting the tone from the top.
