The first part of Roadmapping
is to form the Enterprise Architecture Project Board and then to determine a
framework that will be used to increase your Enterprise Architecture maturity.
In order to do that, you will need to discover and then be
briefed on any number of frameworks.
Once a selection is made from that shortlist, you will then
need to become more aware of the framework selected, what it contains and how
it can help, which will enable you and other Senior Stakeholders to take a
coherent and holistic view of the Methods, Artefacts, Culture and Environment
used by the EA domain. This is the purpose of PEAF. This will allow you to make
informed decisions regarding how that increase might be effected.
You will then be in a good position to perform a high level
evaluation of your maturity and produce a detailed plan for the next phase.
Executive Management will then decide to proceed to the next
phase, to pause, or even stop the initiative at this point.
If we obtain the mandate and resources to proceed, the next
phase is Initiating.
