    Interview with Whynde Kuehn (Strategy to Reality) 1/2

    Business Streams and Value Processes

    Post date:

    Let’s talk about business streams and value processes. Wait, say what? Don’t you mean value streams and business processes?  Yes, in fact I do. But to emphasize that both concepts are very close to each other, I have mixed them up (like most people who work with these architectural concepts).

    From Post-Its to Principles

    Post date:

    Some time ago, I’ve had the pleasure of sitting down with a group of knowledgeable people for the purpose of establishing basic principles for an organisation.  Of course, the Post-Its (sticky notes) were the first thing people reached for when I suggested expressing our thoughts regarding what was really important to the organisation.

    Every year, BizzDesign posts the results of its survey on the State of Enterprise Architecture online.  Despite being valuable data, lately it shows a worrying downward trend. A trend that portrays a steady decline of Enterprise Architecture. To reach this conclusion, I compared the 2021 and 2022 reports. BizzDesign was kind enough to provide me with the 2021 data so that…

  • Ignorance is why Enterprise Architecture fails

    Ignorance is why Enterprise Architecture fails

    Post date:

    Who says ignorance is bliss? Ignorance is the main reason why Enterprise Architecture fails in an organisation. More specifically, organisational ignorance is the main cause of the continuous immaturity of Enterprise Architecture within an organisation. That is, if you’re lucky… Usually, it is this ignorance that leads to a complete failure of Enterprise Architecture. I have discussed Enterprise Architecture’s…

    A lot of organisations are struggling with their strategy; more specifically, they are struggling with the translation of their strategy to its execution. Making sense of strategy is challenging. Last month, I presented a webinar, ‘Making sense of strategy‘, during which I showed the audience how one can get from strategy to execution by using real-world examples. For…
