A week in Tweets: 24-30 October 2010

Running a bit late with this – never mind. A bonus items for enterprise-architects this time, with a stack of Tweets from a business-process conference called VlerickBPI; otherwise it’s the usual categories after the usual ‘Read more…’ link.

Enterprise architecture, business-architecture, business-strategy, futures and similar big-picture business themes:

  • SAlhir: RT @DavidHolzmer “Systems Thinking” Guru Peter Senge on Starbucks, P&G, and the Economic Power of Trash | Fast Company http://ow.ly/2YlYw
  • business_design: The Business Model Toolbox: sign-up for #bmgen iPad app release date: http://goo.gl/SbjB <recommend #bizarch
  • greblhad: Most likely you do enterprise wide architectures within a select domain such as HR, IT, Finance or Engage domains, that is OK! // Architects focus too much about doing EA on an Architecture for the Enterprise level, when in fact they only have mandate for EWDA // If you do Enterprise Wide Domain Architecture then sell EWDA not EA to the sponsors and stakeholders.
  • ironick: RT @rotkapchen: @Rapidinnovation “Trans-disciplinary and not multi-disciplinary approach is needed to create, operate and maintain systems.” Apply to biz. <agree – architecture is about linking things together, not solely about listing the silos
  • SAlhir: RT @corey_ladas @LeanSE: 3 paradigms. Craft: Medieval guilds, Tools->Skills. Mass: Machine/processes drive humans. Lean: adaptive cognition->Focus
  • vernaallee: RT @rossdawson: Great post: The Goldmine Of Opportunities In Gov 2.0 http://tcrn.ch/ahttp://tcrn.ch/aS4RrU <innovation from public data-sets
  • CreatvEmergence: RT @storiedstrategy: Informal, non-sequential and random patterns of communications create the innovation and understanding individuals seek in organisations. <provides examples of ‘Chaotic’ domain in #entarch etc
  • SAlhir: RT @umairh: RT @skap5: Time to replace competitive advantage w/ cooperative advantage in our business lexicon. #bizarch #entarch
  • ironick: RT @choicesoflife: Brilliant: @socialspaghetti: An Architect is processor of opinions rather than dictator of ideas. #entarch
  • taotwit: RT @ebizq: Adrian Grigoriou: Essential Business Architecture http://bit.ly/bH9bqc #bizarch
  • SAlhir: RT @stoweboyd Chief Collaboration Officer? Chief Social Officer? Chief Cognition Officer? Chief Conversation Officer? http://sto.ly/c8eEET <‘Enterprise Architect’ might be an alternate title? – it’s certainly one of the roles of an EA
  • business_design: Fruits of collaboration! RT @sgblank: Entrepreneurship as a Science – The Business Model/Customer Development Stack: http://wp.me/prGQZ-1P0 #bizarch
  • CreatvEmergence: Yes! New paradigm org is “agile, resilient & improvisational…runs on principles, not rules.” by @DavePollard via @RichardHMerrick <note that this is not same as Snowden’s ‘Complex’ domain – i.e. is true ‘Chaotic’ – normative principles that guide emergence, not heuristics derived from emergence
  • chrisdpotts: Started my lecture on #entarch today with photo of part of the internal structure of a famous building.  No surprise, no-one recognized it. // You’re unlikely to recognize the external appearance of your enterprise from a picture of part of its internal structure. #entarch
  • taotwit: Panarchy is a conceptual framework for dual & seemingly contradictory characteristics of complex systems http://bit.ly/bPUg9x <is a framework for understanding ecosystems, yet also applies to e.g. #entarch #orgarch etc
  • SAlhir: RT @CoCreatr @mfauscette: Incompatible: what does it take to be truly visionary? http://tinyurl.com/28odemz

  • unorder: #kmlf there is a psychological trait which works against viewing ICT as merely an enabler: people like buying things not ideas <hence tendency to view IT-centric #entarch *as* the EA, perhaps?
  • business_design: Pretty cool, though I have some reservations about the process RT @om: The Art of Lean Start-Up: Comic Book Edition http://bit.ly/cXTjQI #bizarch #bmgen
  • kvistgaard: The analogy b/n arch of buildings & #entarch is OK only 4 an into course. Finished buildings don’t move or grow or face landscape changes. // (cont) And, just to name the first few diffs, their architects neither update the old nor produce target or what-if blueprints.
  • CreatvEmergence: RT @NewMindMirror – David Bohm on the wholistic universe and quantum physics (VIDEO) http://su.pr/2DBJ2v #entarch
  • kvistgaard: reading serious papers that show links b/n Requirements Management & #entarch.  Always thought the former as integral part of the latter but

  • greblhad: If you standardize work based on a single methodology to do it all then your toolbox is full // Is the tools getting in the way of doing EA and pawing the way for unsupported EWDA’s? #entarch #bizarch #itarch etc – EWDA=enterprise-wide domain-architecture
  • business_design: 🙂 RT @jhagel: The Sushi/Starbucks Index – interesting metric for clustering of knowledge workers http://bit.ly/bfiPLC via @RichardFlorida #orgarch #entarch #society #economics
  • toddbiske: extreme example: HR would never arbitrarily hire people they think the business needs. // I suspect my extreme examples are situations where an analysis of IT goals against biz goals show problems: poor clarity, misalignment, etc. #entarch
  • toddbiske: RT @mikerollings: Demonstrating EA and IT value is not Theoretical … #entarch #cio http://bit.ly/a2qiyx

A brief back-and-forth on ‘success’ in enterprise-architecture:

  • chrisdpotts: RT @mikerollings: @leodesousa #entarch success is based on getting things done, not on ‘educating’ the org about EA <it’s not an either/or – EA is ultimately a whole-org responsibility, hence must do both
  • tetradian: @chrisdpotts @mikerollings @leodesousa re #entarch success as getting things done vs educating org: is not ‘either/or’, must do both
  • chrisvenable: @tetradian Problem is most people don’t want to be educated. They only want to survive and protect their retirement funds. #entarch
  • chrisdpotts: @tetradian @mikerollings @leodesousa Best #entarch ‘education’ is the mindset & approach applied to getting things done.
  • tetradian: @chrisdpotts re ‘education’: one idea: things work better when they work together! – #entarch is responsibility of everyone, not just EAs
  • chrisdpotts: @tetradian absolutely!
  • leodesousa: @tetradian agreed … that is what I hope I said in my blog post.  For #entarch to be holistic it is always about the “AND” @chrisdpotts
  • thoughttrans: RT @tetradian @chrisdpotts re ‘education’ things wk better when they wk together! #entarch is responsibility of every1, not just EAs <+1

  • kdierc: #vlerickbpi zero latency organization = org where action latency is aligned on business process timing – Iafrate
