Calling a halt

Enterprise-architecture is a mess. And I’m not the one to fix it. That’s become all too clear to me right now – particularly after the farrago around that previous couple of posts about specialism-trolling, and the almost total non-response to that pair of

RBPEA: Wrapping up on gender

In what ways can we use explorations at the RBPEA (Really-Big-Picture Enterprise-Architecture) scope and scale to create insights for practical use in everyday-level enterprise-architectures? For example – in the specific case of this blog-series – what can we learn from

RBPEA: An anticlient’s tale

How does someone become an anticlient – a person who’s committed to the same aims of the same shared-enterprise, but vehemently disagrees with how you or your organisation are acting within it? And, since anticlient-actions can actually kill the entire

RBPEA: On abuse and gender

What is abuse, or violence? How do we prevent it, or at least reduce it? And to what extent, and in what ways, is gender a contributing factor in any of this? In line with the theme of this blog-series, in

RBPEA: a quick note on inequalities

This is a quick practical follow-on to the previous post ‘RBPEA: On equality and gender‘. In the ‘Practical applications’ section at the end, where we shift down from the big-picture and refocus on everyday enterprise-architecture, I asserted that “inequalities are

RBPEA: On equality and gender

What is equality? How do we create it, support it? – and why? Is equal always the same as identical? – and if not, why not, and how not? And what part does gender play in any of these? –

RBPEA: On empathy and gender

What is empathy? How does it differ from sympathy, and why? How do we avoid the trap of pseudo-empathy, or getting caught up in the Hunter’s Dilemma? And what part – if any – does gender play in each of

RBPEA: On power and gender

What is power? Where does it come from? Where does it go? Who has it? Who doesn’t have it? Who should have it? Who shouldn’t have it? And why? – or why not, for that matter – to any of

Okay, this is where it gets scary – for me, anyway… – because it’s time for me to return to RBPEA: Really-Big-Picture Enterprise-Architecture. (The reasons why it’s definitely scary for me – and for anyone doing any of this work, frankly

One of the themes that came up in the Vlerick Business School session on EA-roadmaps was around how long it takes to learn how to develop the skills needed to do enterprise-architecture – and how and why to learn them,
