Webinar: 10 Sure-Fire Tips for Getting Stakeholder Buy-In to your Architecture Projects

As you may have read on my blog or even when you hear me present, I talk about how crucial soft-skills are to Enterprise Architects. In my personal opinion I think the majority of our success hinges on our ability to leverage these skills.  So when I run across resources I want to make sure I share them with all of you.

While I haven’t sat in on this particular webinar, I do agree with the themes and messages this is built upon. I believe this derives from a training course called, “Elevating Enterprise Architecture” which serves as a guide to hone in on those soft-skills or in more scientific terms, EQ. I did a full review of this course that you should check out to get a better idea on the foundations in which this webinar is built: http://www.mikethearchitect.com/2013/01/review-elevating-enterprise-architecture.html

I would highly recommend all architects check this out.

On Monday November 18th I will be giving the keynote presentation at the HP Customer Forum in Cincinnati. The theme of the event is the future of IT and what you need to prepare for it. HP calls this the “New Style of IT”.

Included in this event are customers sharing their stories on how to prepare for these IT trends. It should make for a great event and looking forward to meeting up with the local Cincinnati thought leaders.

For those that are local there are still a few limited tickets. If you would like to attend please let me know and will see if I can get you a ticket.
