Enterprise Architecture is fundamental for enabling an enterprise to assimilate internal changes in response to the external dynamics and uncertainties of the information age environment. It not only constitutes a baseline for managing change, but also provides the mechanism by which the reality of the enterprise and its systems can be aligned with management intentions.
This newly revised four day seminar and workshop, based on the recently released Zachman Framework V3.0, for the first time incorporates actual modelling experience. The modelling workshop is based on actual Enterprise experience and is designed to give the participants hands-on experience creating both “Primitive” (architecture) models as well as “Composite” (implementation) models.
The seminar and workshop will prepare delegates for both levels of the Zachman Certified- Enterprise Architect program: Zachman Certified™ - Enterprise Architect Associate (Level1) and Zachman Certified™ - Enterprise Architect Professional (Level 2).
The certification fee (both Level 1 & Level 2) is included in the registration fee. The “Zachman Certified – Enterprise Architect” examination is a two hour, on-line examination that upon passing, results in the award of Enterprise Architect Associate (Level 1) Certification. Delegates will then subsequently be awarded the Enterprise Architect Associate (Level 2) Certification upon submitting a case study.
This is a very exclusive certification program. If you want to understand the “Complexity & Contradiction” in Enterprise Architecture and are struggling to manage a non-adaptive enterprise and dysfunctional systems, this will be an important experience!
