Using eaMindShare at different Levels


eaMindShare lends itself to operate at 3 levels, namely:

        1) Glance and Go,

        2) Reflect and Plan or

        3) Highly Methodical  if so desired.



Glance and Go


Recommended for quick orientation and guiding discussions.

Only use the Visual Map for Architecture Orientation and Guidance

Ideal for Enterprises that looks more for context & orientation than method        Produce same day value

Leave enough space for interpretation



Reflect and Plan


Use the Visual Map & the Reference Guide for Architecture Approaches

Ideal for consistent repeatable processes & deliveries

Will tie down deliveries iro being repeatable, yet leave room for flexibility




Highly Methodical


Recommended for Extended Enterprises or very large Enterprises

Use Togaf ADM for some of the Approaches (Industry Adoption)

Use the visual methods for fast orientation

Use eaMindShare for Solution Architecture

Use Docbase for processes and templates

       



Production Pipeline

When eaMindShare is flattened, a simple 6 phase (A through F) production line becomes visible. Any Architecture deliverable should be able to be produced using this production line.  Each phase consist of multiple procedures that can optionally be executed.

Deliverables

Following the logic it stands to reason that 3 classes of deliverables are produced.

       Class1 Deliverables - Lifecycle Related

               - Those that is produced as part of the lifecycle

               - Mostly generic

       Class 2 Deliverables - based on Type of Work

               - Very specific

               - Orientated at the task at hand

       Class 3 Deliverables - Evidence/output from optional procedures/techniques
