EA Principals has just published a major new book. While taking years to complete, it has succeeded in laying out in detail how to succeed in a real-world scenario regarding some of the major themes emphasized in organizational transformation and Enterprise Architecture today: Customer Centricity and High Value Business Outcomes. This is a very substantial book and especially well-suited for the tens of thousands of practicing Enterprise Architects, but especially ones with a deep knowledge and, ideally, certification, in the TOGAF® Standard.
Having practiced EA in major roles over the past 15+ years, as well as having trained and educated nearly 10,000 professionals, I guarantee that this book, with all its full life cycle , detailed approach to architecture-enabled change, and myriad, magnificent visuals, is a rare treasure and one for which EA practitioners have long been waiting. It is a major treatise and essentially a field manual on how to succeed with the most important stakeholder in mind -- the customer -- and to do so by providing incremental value en route to desired business outcomes. At the latest Gartner IT Symposium/Xpo in 2019, which took place just last week, the themes presented in my new book were enunciated over and over again as critical. Now you have a chance to dive deeply into this topic and I hope you will.
