Enterprise Architecture As Story

This eBook presents an interesting approach to enterprise architecture - using literature, narrative and storytelling. This approach to enterprise architecture uses storytelling to make the connection of business value - the main focus of creating an enterprise architecture in the first place! - with the thing that matters most in the enterprise: people. If people identify with the story, can understand it, can communicate it, then they can implement it and that is the way to produce sustainable results! (200 pages)

The author contends that present approaches to enterprise architecture are unduly biased towards "structure" - enterprise architecture activity focuses on structure, at times, at the expense of other more important things such as the narrative or story. Story is natural to people. Structure not as much - although it can be learned. So, the answer may be the use of structure with interwoven story to get the best enterprise architecture for the enterprise to create maximum sustainable business value.
