Address common challenges with best-practice templates, step-by-step work plans and maturity diagnostics for any Enterprise Architecture and Technology related project.

Download the Toolkit and in Three Steps you will be guided from idea to implementation results.

The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Enterprise Architecture and Technology specific requirements:


STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the Enterprise Architecture and Technology Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 997 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Enterprise Architecture and Technology improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 997 standard requirements:

  1. Is it possible to deliver parts of the system immediately while other parts are being developed so your organizational unit can start to benefit immediately?

  2. How do you structure your architecture and implement new technology to integrate changes into business processes in a quick and cost effective manner?

  3. What elements of the solution are most reusable, in a way that saves time and eliminates risk for readers about to define a new system architecture?

  4. What business processes, data or parts of the information system are of general use or could be leveraged as a general purpose component?

  5. Will vendors reduce innovation time to less than one year and perhaps start to bundle the month and year designation with product names?

  6. Are you tired of core specialist skills and knowledge walking out the door and/or charging unreasonable rates to maintain your system?

  7. Are application and technology portfolios being proactively managed to ensure that IT is agile, cost effective and risk free?

  8. Should the effort to develop/update and enterprises architecture be woven information technology the yearly planning cycle?

  9. How would each element and step be characterized with respect to engineering procedure versus architectural judgment?

  10. What are the relationships of architectural elements and what are the impacts of local changes to other elements?

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose Enterprise Architecture and Technology projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in Enterprise Architecture and Technology and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Enterprise Architecture and Technology investments work better.

This Enterprise Architecture and Technology All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
