Lean & Enterprise Architecture: Enterprise Architecture for Lean Business Processes

Lean & Enterprise Architecture: Enterprise Architecture for Lean Business Processes | Enterprise Architecture | Scoop.it

How can Lean and Enterprise Architecture reinforce each other?


How can EA be helpful in Lean projects, i.e., how can you use it to help realize a lean and agile organization?


Via Frederic Blondieau
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Providing architecture and process models

Reusing existing architecture and process models helps you to kick start your process analyses. This is particularly important in the Measure andAnalyze steps of the DMAIC cycle, where you create artifacts such as process and value stream maps to find bottlenecks, waiting times, complex judgements, rework, hidden factories and other issues in the processes.

Do you see the signs? Time to reshape your architecture capability'? Time to manage your application lifecycle? If you see the warning signs then it may be time to have a chat with me and my colleagues at Capgemini. It may be time to do a health check before it´s to expensive to cure.

Well, definitely it's an interesting book... the only caveat I would mention is about the illustrations... in fact the (ingenious) lady who has written the book (about which the post is more or less make a review) has to have an eagle eye for she has put in here and there illisible illustrations (especially on (Kindle) Kindle... on iPad Kindle it's a bit more lisible but anyhow what we are waiting for from JPEG format illustrations of the size of max 50 kb?! And there are a lots of illustrations and they are also important... soooo, you should fight for the contents...:-)))

Data Modeling in the API Economy

REST APIs converse in data, and present a new idiom for organizing, exposing and exchanging data. There is a need to bring API design into the canon of modeling methods, and to incorporate data modeling as an essential component of this practice.

What is "Enterprise"?

What is "Enterprise"? | Enterprise Architecture | Scoop.it

The EA community have tried very hard to define what is “Enterprise” ?  By dictionary definition and origin of “Enterprise”, Enterprise Architecture  is consider as a boldness or readiness in undertaking; advanturous spirit; ingenuity to transform an organization.

A rather good description of the enterprise. I like the following statement: "enterprise is a complex adaptive system".

Organic means living. The way many organizations are organized for efficiency they are dead and inorganic. Corporation shares etymology with body, which can be alive or dead.

 

Schools are an example. We downloaded fads in the form of habits, ways of thinking, and keys without taking anything out. Schools remain heavily prescribed and static entities which are lifeless and inert.

 

The graphic is interesting. I would put the organic whole below immediately below the universe and cosmos.
