A week in Tweets: 19-25 September 2010

Running perhaps a bit late on this one, and a bit larger than usual, too, but never mind. Usual categories, anyway, after the usual ‘Read more…’ link:

Enterprise-architecture, business-architecture, strategy, policy and other big-picture issues:

  • greblhad: Litmus test on maturity in any organization: Ask if they have IT Projects, HR Projects, Business Projects… or Change Projects. <strongly agree – also cf. @chrisdpotts book ‘FruITion’
  • tetradian: [post] Does specialisation lead to bad architecture? http://bit.ly/9TEUPx #entarch #itarch #bpm (for @nickmalik @mikerollings)
  • nickmalik: Can #BPM be reframed, so that business people are directly using it? Yes.. but the change is disruptive. http://bit.ly/96flUM <recommend re relationship between #entarch and #itarch etc
  • kvistgaard: Why FEAF still encourages Segment Architecture which is just an euphemism of Silo Architecture? #entarch <point taken, though Segments should not be the same as standard business-silos if architecture is done properly
  • vernaallee: Companies that Innovate Collectively http://bit.ly/d29N5q #entarch
  • CreatvEmergence: Yes! Leading by Intuitive Intelligence – http://bit.ly/cu1lwL – via @VenessaMiemis <see also follow-on article on ‘Intuitive Compass’ http://bit.ly/b5dJsq – don’t like that he’s tried to trademark everything in sight, but otherwise recommend
  • chrisdpotts: #CIO as biz strategist: with lots of other strategists around, you’ll have to declare your specialism & make sure its tangible+valuable.
  • business_design: Airline biz model: I pay less for a return flight Geneva-Marseille than if I book a one-way flight? Where’s the (financial) logic?
  • kdierc: @business_design don’t know if it’s financial logic, but logic could be to make sure planes are full? // however, you do not need to use the return if you buy one 🙂 so probably no logic #bizarch #bmgen
  • greblhad: I view the business model as a one liner and the bmcanvas is the explanation. #bizarch #bmgen
  • thoughttrans: @greblhad I view the bmcanvas as overall picture. The biz model as the detail explanation. Interesting…need to think about ur perspective
  • oscarberg: RT @seanrnicholson: The Old Solutions Have Become the New Problems http://bit.ly/kXJEl <–A GREAT read for #intranet and #social folks <classic 2009 article by ex-Harvard Business School prof Shoshana Zuboff – strong recommend
  • thoughttrans: RT @bmichelson For Ent Arch 2b taken seriously as org capability, it needs rebranding. #entarch is too geek. <<agree <I like the term ‘enterprise architecture’ – it’s the right term for what I do, it’s just that it’s been hijacked by others for something completely different that isn’t about the enterprise or even about architecture… 🙁 – why do I need to ‘rebrand’ so that they can continue misleading people with their misnomer-mistake??
  • taotwit: Spent an hour avoiding talking to the client about #vpect only to have them tell me that it was mandated  and had I heard of it!?! 😀 <nice! (Nigel’s VPEC-T is one of the most useful discovery/analysis frameworks for #entarch #itarch etc)

  • business_design: Entrepreneurs should never give up, but they need to learn when to kill a business model or pivot into a new one #CustDev #bmgen <in some ways this echoes @rtolido’s point about the need for deliberate destruction in #entarch #itarch etc
  • SAlhir: RT @ArnoldBeekes Creating value in the age of distributed capitalism http://post.ly/ytbL <great McKinsey / Shoshana Zuboff article #bizarch
  • thoughttrans: RT @copyblogger: 4 Principles of Information Architecture http://bit.ly/9InZev <actually 8, but well worth a read

A discussion on values in enterprise-architectures, starting from a Tweet by Nigel Green (@5Di/@taotwit):

  • 5Di: Values=what’s cared about – Value=’Worth’: Knowing Stakeholder Values & explicit/implicit Value of info are 2 key principles for EA #vpect #entarch
  • bmichelson: so, #entarch frameworks are a problem (constraint) if adopters equate EA Mission & Success with framework completion, otherwise enabler?
  • toddbiske: RT @taotwit @bmichelson fworks are useful but shouldn’t be the centre-of-gravity #entarch << agree.
  • taotwit: @toddbiske I believe they constrain if they become ‘religous fundamentalism’
  • taotwit: @toddbiske ah yes, What and Why before How – why do we still discuss this? The essence of EA IMO // so often I hear tools discussed by EAs rather than biz values/value
  • toddbiske: @taotwit @bmichelson whether #entarch or anything else, leaders must focus on what they deliver first. How is secondary.
  • greblhad: @toddbiske @taotwit @bmichelson #entarch if “what” is a well known thing then “how” could very well be the focus
  • toddbiske: @greblhad not if you lose sight of “what” in the process.  #entarch
  • taotwit: @greblhad yes, just a matter of order 🙂
