The slidedeck is just under 80 slides, split into five sequences:
- “What’s the story?” – introducing the idea of story as a way of working within enterprise-architectures, using the example of Carnaval, in Rio de Janeiro
- “A cast of thousands!” – describing the ‘sharedness’ of enterprises and the enterprise-story, again using Carnaval as its example
- “The plot thickens…” – linking story to process and the practical details of the enterprise
- “To be continued…” – exploring the structure of story, and strategic-structures that cause failure of the organisation’s story
- “Every picture tells a story” – a plea for stronger support of story in our enterprise-architecture toolsets
For once, I did a slidedeck that’s more about visuals than words – and it certainly seemed to go down well with the audience, which is always good fun.
The conference is, for me, one of the highlights of the year, because they cover architectures with such an enormously varied scope: most of the attendees are from defence / security contexts or high-reliability areas such as rail-transport or air-traffic control. I put in a a few sort-of visual jokes that I put in specifically for them – which seemed to go down well, too.
I also did a audio-recording, but it’s a bit crackly. I’ll try to clean it up and, if so, attach it to the slidedeck to make a bit more of a standalone presentation.
Share and enjoy, anyway?
