Actionable EA Principles for Business Value Realisation
One of the first actions that the Chief Architect undertakes is to generate a set of EA principles based on the organisational strategic objectives. While these are 'well intentioned' pronouncements at the policy level, unfortunately they often remain as 'motherhood' statements with very little traceability right down to the project deliverables. In most organisations, there is a large gulf between the EA principles and the projects that are meant to generate EA conformant solutions. This presentation aims to describe techniques that can potentially bridge this gulf through implementation of actionable EA principles. These dill right down to the 'excruciating level' of detail necessary to produce artefacts that can readily be deployed by projects. In fact, the Chief Architect can envision and plan for 'quick wins' for each of the TOGAF ADM cycles, based on the business value realisation of a specific set of actionable EA principles.

Buying "Business Buy In"
One of the top challenges, if not ‘the’ top challenge, of an Enterprise Architect is to get business buy in for EA and to ensure continuous business engagement all through the EA journey. TOGAF provides a number of valuable guidelines and best practices for business engagement, but there are practical challenges that still need to be addressed, as they arise. There is a fundamental need for a change of business perception of EA as a pure technology exercise and for the EA practitioners to create the necessary rapport and earn the respect of business executives. This presentation outlines some of the tried and trusted practical techniques that can help Enterprise Architects achieve successes in this crucial area, which can potentially make or break the entire EA programme.
