Enterprise Architecture (EA) is a critical discipline for both strategic planning and effective execution. The Gartner Group identified that one of the biggest EA problems is the abundance of ineffective LEAD architects with cross-disciplinary skills. The LEAD Enterprise Architect certification program is developed for professionals that are leading EA projects and teams. It is designed to meet today’s cross-disciplinary requirements to lead teams in adopting a common and structured way of thinking, working and modelling across enterprise architecture, processes, services, value, information (application and data) and technology (platform and infrastructure).
The LEAD Enterprise Architect certification program modules uniquely combine classroom training with individual performance coaching and project coaching on the participant’s own selected company projects, enabling LEAD Enterprise Architects to lead EA programs and efforts. Being able to adapt EA concepts and modelling principles to organizational dynamics and culture is critical for successfully using EA to transform the business with relevant, actionable guidance. This certification program has been structured to build on the existing competencies of the practitioner while infusing a new way of thinking, working and modelling. This is where the participants apply the acquired modelling techniques in their related areas and disciplines.
