Implementation: TOGAF® 9

This course is all about getting started with an Enterprise Architecture practice. In particular, it looks at what should be considered when attempting to establish or improve an existing EA practice.

It provides the background to TOGAF-style architectures, as well as exposure to many subjects that are often glossed over by other enterprise architecture frameworks. In this, we establish the value that TOGAF brings to the discipline.

Why take this course?

Enterprise Architecture is a discipline that consists of many areas, approaches, guidelines and techniques. There are a number of well known EA ‘frameworks’, including TOGAF® (Open Group), NAF (NATO), FEAF (US Federal CIO Council) and so on.

One of the major challenges with enterprise architecture frameworks is 'how to implement' them or, even more importantly, 'how to start'. Some prior knowledge of architecture is expected though not required.

This course provides guidance on ‘how to start’; that is, how to go about getting your enterprise architecture practice established (or improved). It will provide you with enough insight and detail to integrate what you learn directly into your practice incrementally (a necessity, as many of the areas within enterprise architecture are allied but distinct).

This course is perfect for you if...

  • You have knowledge of EA, are TOGAF-certified, or are studying to gain your certification

  • You are commencing or want to improve an EA practice

  • You are a newly-appointed EA manager, a chief architect, an experienced EA practitioner, a lead architect, or a project/ programme manager

  • You want guidance and insight from senior EA practitioners on how to get started with implementation

  • You want exposure to the key implementation challenges which you and your team will face

  • You want to study in your own time, at your own pace and on devices of your choosing

Exams / Assessments

Students will be exposed to most of the challenges faced when setting up an enterprise architecture practice.

This is a practically-oriented course and does not come with any formal certification. Rather than simple quizzes on the content covered, each module concludes with a written exercise that encourages you to apply what you have learned. An experienced EA practitioner will then review what you have written.

There is no single correct answer, as the exercises are practical and require you to take into account your own organization's structure, politics, processes, objectives and tools as well as any existing frameworks.

Although there is no official examination or assessment, a certificate of completion will be awarded once you successfully finish the course.
