The model or the people?

Chris Potts wrote an insightful post on People versus Models. Chris’s article goes into the current challenges in banking and contrasting that with architecture practices. He exposes some interesting points from The Economist that references EA processes by stating:

‘What separates the winners and the losers is not models, but management.’ 

He references this week’s edition, entitled "No Size Fits All" which is about EA, but doesn’t call it that. 

Another point about the Zachman Framework for EA made was where to start in the decision framework. He asserts that you may want to start with the right hand side (Who, When, Why), rather than the left (What, How, Where).
