Metaframeworks in practice, Part 4: Context-space mapping and SCAN

What generic base-frameworks or base-metaframeworks do we need, to support sensemaking and decision-making across the full scope of enterprise-architectures? How do we create those frameworks in real-world practice? This is the fourth of five worked-examples of metaframeworks in practice – on how

Metaframeworks in practice: Introduction

If most of the frameworks we use in enterprise-architecture are ‘smooshed together’ from other frameworks, according to the needs of the context, then how do we do that ‘smooshing together’? More to the point, when and how and why should we

On metaframeworks in enterprise-architecture

How do we avoid the dreaded ‘framework-wars’ in enterprise-architecture and elsewhere? If there’s no ‘Single Unified Framework For Everything™’, how do we ‘smoosh frameworks together’ to get the best fit for each current context? The answer: metaframeworks. And, perhaps even more, the

On sensemaking-models and framework-wars

How do we use sensemaking-models in enterprise-architecture? What’s different about this discipline that can so often cause such use to become problematic? I know I need to move on to more of that current series on power and politics in enterprise-architecture,

Business-architecture frameworks

Diana Stobart Wild’s other question on the LinkedIn business architecture forum was about frameworks: What is Business Architecture? What does a Business Architecture Framework look like? I think of Business Architecture as a subset of Enterprise Architecture that describes the
