EA Talk on Managing Complexity

#entarch I shall be was one of the speakers at the Unicom EA Forum on February 24th in Central London. This post now edited to remove invitation and include slides.


As business becomes more complex, enterprises are faced with structural complexities that critically affect business performance. Enterprise architecture provides a way of planning and coordinating both human systems and technical systems (including IT), and thereby overcoming the structural inhibitors to business performance. I shall talk about some emerging practical methods for business architecture, and show how these can be used in tandem with the standard popular approaches to manage the true complexity of the business.


Following my talk, Professor Bernie Cohen talked about some related work by Philip Boxer and himself. Here are his slides.
