Implementation: TOGAF® eLearning
This course is all about getting started with an enterprise architecture practice. In particular, it looks at what should be considered when attempting to establish or improve an enterprise architecture practice.
It provides the background to TOGAF-style architectures, as well as exposure to many subjects that are often glossed over by other enterprise architecture frameworks. In this, we establish the value that TOGAF brings to the discipline. One of the major challenges with enterprise architecture frameworks is 'how to implement' them or, even more importantly, 'how to start'. Some prior knowledge of architecture is expected though not required.
This course is delivered in cooperation with Good e-Learning, see all courses from Good e-Lerning here.

Why you should take this course:
Enterprise Architecture is a discipline that consists of many areas, approaches, guidelines and techniques. There are a number of well known EA ‘frameworks’, including TOGAF® (Open Group), NAF (NATO), FEAF (US Federal CIO Council) and so on.
This course provides guidance on ‘how to start’; that is, how to go about getting your enterprise architecture practice established (or improved). It will provide you with enough insight and detail to integrate what you learn directly into your practice incrementally (a necessity, as many of the areas within enterprise architecture are allied but distinct).

ABOUT THIS COURSE
This ‘Getting Started’ course offers new ways to look at how you might get your TOGAF implementation off the ground, and helps you make informed choices about how to begin. It shows you how to tailor in your organization’s existing culture, strategy and skills rather than implement blindly from a template. Focusing on the Preliminary Phase, the course also looks at how to integrate TOGAF into the organization by setting up the correct structures, helping you begin implementation
properly, and support the activities of the EA team successfully.
The course continues to look at EA demand and the motivation behind change, how we address these changes, the composition of these changes, and finally the delivery of change. It will also consider other frameworks, such as ITIL, and IT4IT. The course contains an overview, followed by ten modules. A written exercise concludes each module.
The course is valid for 12 months after activation. Please indicate in the additional information section of the ordering form when you approx. would like to start.
