Setting out to evolve a complex system is a fascinating and privileged endeavour. Frameworks provide useful tools to assist with understanding organisational systems and their evolution, but the answer to questions regarding correct application of frameworks is usually ‘it depends’. Theory is necessary, however vigorous questioning, examples and participant interaction provide the real learning. Attendees should emerge from training with renewed excitement about the discipline of enterprise architecture, and the desire to put their knowledge to work.
