The Art of Judgment: Value Judgment
About this Resource
This white paper is the second in a series that explores the role of judgment in Enterprise Architecture. In particular, it focuses on the relationship between the Enterprise Architect, the information and the personal qualities that enable successful execution of that role.
The title is taken from a seminal book by Sir Geoffrey Vickers - The Art of Judgment which focuses on the types of judgment involved in perceiving the environment and decision making in the shaping of policy. Architecture and design are decision-centric, human processes that apply human values to information within the context of defined objectives. The challenge is recognizing the balance between a more rational or intuitive approach when informing decisions made constantly by Enterprise Architects.
In this paper, Ceri Williams focuses on Value Judgment. This type of judgment is constrained by the quality and nature of the Reality Judgment that provides the raw material with which to explore and define what ought to be.
