Without a clear vision that the Enterprise can understand, agree and believe in, any attempt to increase one's maturity will fail.

Here we set out the fundamental reasons (Goals) why an increase in maturity is desirable, the means by which we will achieve them (Strategies, Tactics) and what we must do (Objectives).

      The Goals of Enterprise Architecture are dependent upon and support an existing Enterprise Goal (shown in grey) - to Increase the Effectiveness, Efficiency, Agility and Durability of the entire Enterprise. If it is not, the first thing to do is to get the Strategy creators to either explicitly add it, or explicitly state that it is not a Goal.

      The Goal of Enterprise Architecture - to Increase the Effectiveness, Efficiency, Agility and Durability of Enterprise Transformation - defines the purpose of Enterprise Architecture and therefore EA's whole existence relies on this Goal to be specified in the Enterprise Strategy. If it is not, the second thing to do is to get the Strategy creators to either explicitly add it, or explicitly state that it is not a Goal.

Either way is OK. It is for the Executive Board to decide if these goals are required or not. If they do decide that these goals are valid and required, we can help to achieve them. If not we will ignore them and therefore an increase in Enterprise Architecture maturity will not be required.

 

Do these Goals exist in your Enterprise Strategy?
