No - It is too simplistic to be of any real value. It is useful for consulting firms looking for a "service offering" out of the box or educating those who wish to become EAs. But if you are already a practicing EA then you should already know everything that is in the framework...and much more.. - Enterprise Architect, RTA, Australia, May 2010

Here we see how the Cost of Transforming some "thing" and the Ability to Transform some "thing" changes as Transformational Complexity increases.

The dotted lines indicate the result if we DO NOT USE The Architecture Paradigm

      The Cost of Transformation (the red dotted line) - starts very low but rises exponentially as Transformational Complexity rises. Ultimately it rises to a point where the cost of Transforming becomes prohibitive.

      The Ability to Transform (the green dotted line) - starts very high but falls exponentially as Transformational Complexity rises. Ultimately it falls to a point where the Ability to Transform becomes impossible.

The solid lines indicate the result if we DO USE The Architecture Paradigm

      The Cost of Transformation (the red solid line) - starts very low, and while it does rise as Transformational Complexity rises, this rise tends to be more linear and manageable.

      The Ability to Effect Transformation (the green solid line) - also starts very high, and while it does fall as Transformational Complexity rises, this fall tends to be more linear and manageable.

Deciding to adopt The Architecture Paradigm (increasing the maturity in its use) in one or more domains, requires that an Enterprise make adjustments to the Methods, Artefacts, Culture and Environment used in those domains.

 

Where is your Enterprise on this graph?

Where will it be in the next one, three, five years?

What will you do then?

What will you do now to prepare for then?
