The Enterprise Architecture Way is a simple four steps and two rules based on harnessing the knowledge and experience of you and the rest of the people in the system.

The 4 steps

  1. Observe the environment that you expect to take part in.
  2. Orient your selves to the level of detail you judge necessary to make decisions.
  3. Decide which of the scenarios to engage in and how to do it.
  4. Act as fast and forceful as you can upon the scenarios you have chosen to act on.

The 2 rules

  1. Improvise, adapt and overcome.
  2. Keep your Resourcebox half empty, such that you may tailor your resources to fit any situation at all times.

Resourcebox = a selection of space where you store access to people, organizations, methods, rules, finance, software,  hardware…)

This is the last of the sections I intend to write on The Art of Enterprise Architecture. I know I’ve written this ahead of actually finishing sections six to thirteen, however this will be the full circle.
