Learning Objectives

The primary aims of this and the related certificate are to give enterprise and solution architects a broad framework that covers the range of architecture work that precedes and steers system development, and to focus attention on areas where the architect is responsible for effective design and risk management.

A secondary aim is to provide architects with generally applicable knowledge and training. General here means independent of any specific architecture framework including general knowledge and skills, rather than framework-specific terms, concepts, structures and processes.

By the end of the course delegates will:

- Have formed a coherent picture of architects’ roles in practice
- Understand enterprise and solution architecture frameworks
- Understand the ways architects build architecture descriptions
- Know ways to model the principal deliverables of architecture frameworks like TOGAF & Zachman
- Take away useful distillations of architecture practices and deliverables.


Minimum candidate pre-requisites are recommended as three or more years experience of IS/IT work, including some contact with IT architects and architecture descriptions.
