This week I talked in length about The New World of Enterprise Architecture or also referred to as Contemporary Enterprise Architecture. This is the notion that EA is primarily business driven and focused. A few weeks back, I picked up a book called Business Model Generation. I have to say I was very impressed. I believe this should be one of the critical books on all EA’s bookshelves. This will provide Enterprise Architects who want to understand business architecture in a meaningful way a quick start guide in very practical terms. The book not only has a great look and feel but also has a ton of excellent examples on how to apply including Microsoft, Apple and even broader styles of businesses such as Open Source.
While the book focuses one Business Canvas Modeling, it provides context on how to look at other models in the business architecture and strategy planning.
