TOGAF® 9 Stakeholder Management: Selecting The Right Views for C-Level Buy In To EA
Enterprise Architecture initiatives without sponsorship or
support from relevant senior management stakeholders are
at risk of being under-funded or, at worst, not signed off in the
first place. The Senior Management will have a significant impact
on the overall success of a project. Addressing the concerns of
these stakeholders will therefore enable the wider adoption of
Enterprise Architecture in the organisation.
Using the standard TOGAF® 9 stakeholder management
approach, this white paper works through the four steps of the
Identification, Classification, Definition and Tailoring of the
viewpoints for C-Level, and in doing so shows how the CEO, and
other C-level executives, can be treated as any other stakeholder
within an architecture initiative and must be included in any
stakeholder analysis exercises.
