Every organization can benefit from a set of shared foundational beliefs – EA principles.

  • EA principles guide decisions on the use of IT across the enterprise. IT decisions that are informed by a shared set of guiding principles (as opposed to employee’s assumptions and personal preferences) require less IT governance effort and enable the organization’s cohesiveness in achieving both strategic and tactical goals.
  • EA principles represent a key component of IT governance and should guide the development of domain-specific policies (e.g. security policy, procurement policy) that elaborate on particular implications of principles in specific process areas.

Put together a succinct and accepted set of no more than 10 principles to guide your EA team.
