Digital E.A. as a Culture
Enterprise Architecture (EA) must be embraced at every level in an organization to the point of an entity-wide cultural shift. If this is not achieved, it is almost certain that after the consultant leaves, the E.A implementation would fail, with static documentation that the consultant had delivered being kept in cupboards, never to be referred to again. Meanwhile, vast amounts of shareholder’ or taxpayers’ money were wasted.
So how does ATD Consulting help the client bring in a cultural shift? ATD deploys a proven, flexible model utilizing a combination of our consulting, education and coaching services.
