Why Doesn't the Federal Enterprise Architecture Work?

The federal government has spent more than a billion dollars in its attempt to put Enterprise Architecture into practice across the federal government.

Unfortunately, much or possibly even most of this taxpayer money has been wasted. Many or likely even most federal Enterprise Architecture efforts have delivered little of value, and some agencies have literally nothing to show for the money spent.

This paper communicates the findings of a thorough and in-depth analysis that was performed to determine why the FEA hasn't worked and to identify the root causes of its failure.
