Why Read This Report

Enterprise architecture (EA) teams too often fail to provide business leaders with a clear picture of their firms' architecture and how those leaders' decisions (past and present) affect that architecture and the firms' future choices.

This case study examines this unorthodox and successful technique and draws lessons from it that all EA professionals can use.
