ARC - Enterprise Architecture for Leaders

This course examines enterprise architecture (EA) as a strategic capability organizational leaders use for enterprise planning, resource investment, management decision-making, and key process execution. Students explore leadership competencies and strategies needed to advance EA adoption and assess the integration of EA with governance, strategic planning, budgeting, portfolio management, capital planning, and information assurance. They critique EA prescriptive frameworks that guide EA development activities and review EA evaluative frameworks used to assess organizational EA management capacity and capability. Students evaluate challenges to organizational EA adoption and consider strategies to address them.
