PEAF is a framework and therefore is governed by EMMA (The
Framework Ontology) for its use and adoption. The three phases, as defined by
EMMA, map to the six fundamental phases of Transformation. For each of the
phases, we indicate (in green) the resources that phase will require to execute
and (in red) the resources that are being sought to execute the next phase.
Evaluate - Measured in days.
Strategising - EA - Why Should I Care?
out the high level reasons why any other work related to EA should take place.
It should take less than 30 minutes to explain to a member of the C-Suite or
senior Executive and sets the domain of interest.
Roadmapping - Select EA Framework.
allows for the review and ultimate selection of an EA framework and to perform
a high level evaluation of the Enterprises EA Maturity to determine what work
is required to utilise it.
addition, at this point, it may also be decided that other sub-parts may
require improvement. If that is the case then those initiatives would begin
their own journey using EMMA with Strategising and “Why Should I Care?” and
would become sub initiatives.
Analyse - Measured in weeks.
¨ Initiating - Understand EA Framework
we do whatever is necessary to understand how to apply PEAF. This may entail
reading books, attending workshops or training, using a consultancy or any
combination thereof depending on the Enterprise and the individuals involved.
¨ Elaborating - Plan Rollout of EA Framework.
we use PEAF to consider our maturity in detail. What level we are, what level
we wish to attain, what the benefits are, and what actions need to be taken in
order to effect that increase in maturity.
Modify - Measured in months.
¨ Constructing - Develop Changes.
we use PEAF to produce the things required to effect the increase in maturity.
¨ Transitioning - Rollout Changes.
those things are rolled out into live operation.
The ultimate goal is to increase the effectiveness and
efficiency of the domain in question.
