“Coherency Management – Architecting the Enterprise for Alignment, Agility and Assurance” is a new EA book from co-editors Gary Doucet, John Goetz, Palla Saha and Scott Bernard. It includes a chapter, contributed by Larry DeBoever, George Paras and Tim Westbrock at EAdirections, entitled “A Pragmatic Approach to Enlisting the Support of CEOs for Enterprise Architecture”. This chapter covers everything from assessing a leadership team’s attitides and perspectives, to executive messaging, alignment approaches. and specific recommendations on how to engage the CEO and other executive leaders.
With submissions from over 30 authors and co-authors, the book reinforces the idea that EA is being practiced in an ever-increasing variety of circumstances – from the tactical to the strategic, from the technical to the political, and with governance that ranges from sell to tell. One key message is that EA must be viewed as an Enterprise Design and Management approach, adopted to building better enterprises, rather than a IT Design and Management approach limited to building better systems.
It is available directly from the publisher, AuthorHouse, or from your favorite bookseller.
