Running way late on the weeklies – apologies. Usual categories, anyway, after the usual ‘Read more…’ link.

Enterprise-architecture, business-architecture, all that kind of stuff:

  • richardveryard: @chrisdpotts @CarlChilley Architects are agents of stability. Change happens (emerges) in the spaces inbetween. #entarch <disagree: if we do the entarch properly, we design for emergence, not against it (cf. ‘business-anarchist’ theme)

Using VPEC-T to underpin both top-down and bottom-up stories in this way will simplify the Synthesis phase and helps de-clutter conversations and quickly develop a complete set hypotheses focused on people, process and IT aspects of Business Change. #bcdesign #vpect

A few notes – most by Philip Allega – from the current Gartner enterprise-architecture conference:

  • pallega: RT @Squizme: #CIOTownHall – “The notion of learning curve is dead 1/3 of this audience using #iPad #GartnerSym
  • pallega: RT @sorenp: Time for EA folks to read “Who moved my cheese” >> Brian Burke #GartnerSym Traditional approach to EA is slowly becoming irrelevant
  • pallega: RT @MartinHowitt: (for @JohnWLewis) Brian Burke at #gartnersym: “aircraft design is a tame problem; airspace design is a “wicked problem”
  • pallega: RT @MartinHowitt: Brian Burke at #gartnersym: #entarch is more of a game than a puzzle. design the game and let the players decide their own moves // hyperconnectivity means more focus on emergent, less on deliberate strategy: strategy is less of a driver of chg
  • thoughttrans: RT @carlhaggerty: Unstructured work is the new frontier in BPM and Social BPM – #gartnersym <<and it must be perceived value driven
  • pallega: RT @sorenp: Games differs from puzzles in that outcome is not predetermined. #entarch: Stop talking about solving the puzzle, learn to play the game

Adrian Campbell uses a jigsaw-puzzle metaphor for enterprise-architecture:

  • adrianrcampbell: #EntArch is sometime like doing a jigsaw puzzle with many of the pieces missing and no picture on the front of the box // #EntArch #BizArch should have a long-term focus driven by business model innovations  to differentiate and keep the enterprise in business. // #EntArch #BizArch  and #BMGEN is like drawing the picture on the front of the jigsaw puzzle box
  • emovere: @tetradian @adrianrcampbell #entarch is by definition a jigsawpuzzle with lots of pieces missing & definitely no picture on front of the box
  • ironick: @tetradian @emovere I’m trying to make #entarch more like a tangram puzzle & less like a jigsaw puzzle. http://bit.ly/aj5HWs
  • CarlChilley: @ironick @tetradian @emovere Standard ploy in problem solving is to limit the degrees of freedom the problem space inhabits. # entarch too?
  • emovere: @ironick @tetradian tangram or jigsaw… aslongas we realize ourselves that the pieces are dynamic in nature and change shape as we go along
  • emovere: @CarlChilley @ironick @tetradian well, today our problemspaces are not sitting ducks any more – they intermingle cont. with other pr.spaces
  • CarlChilley: @emovere @ironick @tetradian Agree re mixing of often disparate problem spaces. But which ones should we focus on? Big part of #entarch

Narrative-knowledge, knowledge-management, creativity, leadership, in-person collaboration:

A happy back-and-forth about Pomodoro:

  • heidikraft: All you productivity experts out there.  What’s the name of the method where you work in 90 minute focused increments?
  • tetradian: @heidikraft dunno about 90 minutes, but Pomodoro is 25mins + 5mins break http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pomodoro_Technique
  • kvistgaard: RT @tetradian: @heidikraft dunno about 90 minutes, but Pomodoro is 25mins + 5mins break <- and IMHO that’s the sizing that works
  • heidikraft: @tetradian Yes!  Pomodoro is it.  Thank you, was driving me crazy!
  • heidikraft: @kvistgaard  And thanks for your cconfirmation on Pomodoro.  I knew it sounded like a pasta ;-) // actually I haven’t heard the 25+5mins break – just the 90.  Is there information on that or from your experience?
  • tetradian: @heidikraft Pomodoro suggest brief break each 30mins (i.e. 25+5) + longer break after 3-4 ‘pomodoro’ periods (hence 90min or 120min)
  • kvistgaard: @heidikraft I can confirm the effects claimed by the book http://bit.ly/13ZQoR It didn’t work at first 4 me then after 3 months tried again // It’s more than u expect after reading the book. Works best when combined w/ tools against distrac.& procr. http://amzn.to/dB5dUW // and by the way the originator is @cirillof so you can follow him if you want
  • heidikraft: @tetradian  Huh.  Well I’ve been coaching clients on 90 min without breaks in between then – I guess I’m tough ;-) .  Thanks for the help!
  • tetradian: @heidikraft re Pomodoro – yep, you’s tough! :-) (25+5min is mainly for partitioning intense solo head-work; collab/people-work is different)
