Safeguarding: Controlling Enterprise Architecture Development
What is the best plan worth if one does not succeed at controlling its implementation? What is the benefit of identifying consolidation potential (e.g. in the case of development lines) in ones organization if it is left unexploited, if reference architecture models are not specified and introduced as obligatory? What is the value of eliminating redundant development lines if the capacity that is saved is not sensibly re-channeled, for instance, in order to reinforce the innovative strength of ones IT unit? We have all seen Parkinson ’ s Law at work in organizations. The law states that work has a tendency to fill up the available time. This means that savings can only be realized where other useless activities do not fill up the space that was previously occupied by superfluous development lines, infrastructure components or the misguided projects!
