More on not-retiring

This one’s a follow-up on my previous post, from a month ago now, ‘On not retiring‘. What I said back there was that, yeah, fairly obviously, people like me (and you too, I presume) don’t ever really retire – we

RBPEA: Opportunities unheeded…

Following on from that description of ‘further-futures’ enterprise-architecture, several folks have asked me for a real example of the kind of world that I see, as an outcome of ‘Really-Big-Picture Enterprise-Architecture‘ [RBPEA]. In other words, what would be the outcome

Enterprise-architecture – a further-futures report

We’ve explored the current status for enterprise-architecture [EA]; we’ve explored the changes to the discipline over the past few decades. Time now, perhaps, to assess the future – or futures, rather – of its likely onward development and direction. This report is in two parts:

This one’s a follow-up to a recent post, ‘Technology-adoption, Wardley-maps and Bimodal-IT‘, which adds the theme of time-horizons for strategy. The starting-point was a kind Tweet-comment by Ralph-Christian Ohr about that post of mine: RT @ralph_ohr Great post by @tetradian
