EA Series – Episode 40: Positioning an Enterprise Architect for Success

In this article,the author, Nick Malik from Microsoft talks about a model for positioning an Architect within an enterprise – either for a particular IT unit or for a specific business unit within the enterprise. The author provides a maturity model to illustrate the activities, goals and expectations from an architect, positioned to a specific area of the business.

He also provides a couple of interesting scenarios on how this model can be used.

A very compelling read for practitioners / technologists who are in the role of positining enterprise architects in strategic engagements and the EA themselves, to help them build a framework to establish goals and expectations from such roles, both from the EA as well as the organizations.
