Behavioral Patterns for Enterprise Architects
October 27 @ 11:45 - 12:35 GMT£795
In spite of their hard work and excellent artefacts, EAs are often marginalised or avoided. To overcome this lack of impact, EAs must rethink the way they are trying to influence their various stakeholders, from producer of artefacts to facilitator of strategy, design and governance processes. This enterprise facilitator role focuses on facilitating the interplay between the many disciplines that have a stake in shaping the enterprise – service designers, process managers, executives, software architects, etc. The role of the EA as facilitator is to enable negotiation processes that lead to architectures that are optimised for the whole enterprise rather than just the tribe with the most political power.
You will learn:
- Why it is mission-critical for you to shift your mindset from being the architect to being the facilitator
- Some practical behavioural patterns you can use
- Examples that demonstrate the successful use of these patterns
