Launch of the Architectural Thinking Framework®

The Architectural Thinking Association® is proud to launch the first draft of the Architectural Thinking Framework® which is a truly open, lightweight architectural framework that is based on the experience of many practitioners.

The Architectural Thinking Framework® has the goal to ensure that all the solutions of a company fit together in order to balance the dimensions (i) customer value, (ii) finance and (iii) sustainability in a way that maximizes the overall value from an enterprise-wide viewpoint in the short and the long term.

It consists of four parts:

The Architectural Thinking Framework® is available in a first draft in our wiki and comes with detailed, practicable how-tos that explain how to model and design architecture maps and how to integrate with the relevant processes (e.g. vision buildingstrategic planning&governance and solution development). The how-tos are published on our wiki for open participation; everybody is invited to bring in real-world practical experiences there.

Architectural Thinking is not a process or discipline. Instead, it makes use of a content-oriented framework that defines artifacts and their relations that need to be created by various processes (such as strategy, governance or solution development). The Architectural Thinking Framework® enables consistent, connected, company-wide structures that ensure traceability from business vision to technology implementation.

It is lean enough for Agile but works as well with classical project management methods.
