- Traditional enterprise architecture management (EAM) caters to only 10% – the IT people, and not to the remaining 90% of the organization.
- EAM practices do not scale well with the agile way of working and are often perceived as "bottlenecks” or “restrictors of design freedom.”
- The organization scale does not justify a full-fledged EAM with many committees, complex processes, and detailed EA artifacts.
Architecture is a competency, not a function. Project teams, including even business managers outside of IT, can assimilate “architectural thinking.”
Impact and Result
Increase business value through the dissemination of architectural thinking throughout the organization. Maturing your EAM practices beyond a certain point does not help.
