Implementation: TOGAF®

Course Overview -  Watch a Video

This course is about getting started with an Enterprise Architecture Practice, and in particular it’s about what should be considered when you’re looking to establish or improve your Enterprise Architecture Practice.

It provides the background and exposure to some well-known subjects that are often glossed over by the other well-known Enterprise Architecture frameworks. With this is mind, we recognize the value that TOGAF brings to the discipline and we provide a brief overview to set the scene.

One of the major challenges with Enterprise Architecture frameworks is 'how to implement' or even more importantly 'how to start'. Some prior knowledge of architecture is expected although not required.

Why you should take this course:

Enterprise Architecture is a discipline that consists of many areas, approaches, guidelines and techniques and there are a number of well-known framework available for example TOGAF® (Open Group), NAF (NATO), FEAF (US Federal CIO Council) etc.

This course provides a ‘how to start’ regarding getting your Enterprise Architecture Practice established (or potentially improved if you already have one) and will provide you with an insight and enough detail to integrate directly into your practice incrementally because the module provides information and guidance on allied but distinct areas.

Exams / Assessments

Candidates of this course 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. But rather than simple quizzes on content, each module concludes with a written exercise that encourages you to apply what you have learned, and an experienced EA Practitioner will 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, objective, tools and existing frameworks.

Although there is no official examination or assessment, a certificate of completion is awarded upon successful completion.
