Zachman Certification Workshop

 

Purpose

Enterprise Architecture is fundamental for enabling an enterprise to assimilate internal changes in response to the external dynamics and uncertainties of the information age environment. It not only constitutes a baseline for managing change, but also provides the mechanism by which the reality of the enterprise and its systems can be aligned with management intentions.

This newly revised seminar and workshop, based on the recently released Zachman Framework V3.0, for the first time incorporates actual modeling experience. The modeling workshop is based on actual Enterprise experience and is designed to give the participants hands-on experience creating both “Primitive” (architecture) models as well as “Composite” (implementation) models.

The seminar and workshop will prepare participants for both levels of the Zachman Certified- Enterprise Architect program: Zachman Certified™ - Enterprise Architect Associate (Level1) and Zachman Certified™ - Enterprise Architect Professional (Level 2).

The certification fee is included in the registration fee. The Zachman Certified – Enterprise Architect examination is a two hour, on-line examination that upon passing, results in the award of Enterprise Architect Associate (Level 1) Certification. Associate Level 1 ZCEAs are then eligible to continue in the Zachman Certified - Enterprise Architect program.

This is a very exclusive certification program. If you want to understand the “Complexity & Contradiction” in Enterprise Architecture and are struggling to manage a non-adaptive enterprise and dysfunctional systems, this will be an important experience!

Course Objectives

Newly re-designed, this mixed-mode course is is a mix of online prep work in our Virtual University and three days of live instruction. The objective of this training course is to build an understanding of the concepts of Enterprise Architecture and develop a sense of urgency for implementing those concepts in a modern enterprise. The Level 1 Zachman Certified™ - Enterprise Architect Associate course gives today's Enterprise Architects the opportunity to strengthen their skills as well as broaden their understanding of industry trends and the use of The Zachman Framework™. This course is designed to teach the science of EA- what relevant things exist in the Enterprise and what must be considered in its creation and change, about the Enterprise ontology, and foundation to equip Enterprise Architects to make their own methodological choices.

 

Idea Behind the Workshop

It’s interesting to note that Enterprise Architecture has made its way up to the boardroom, just as the board-level talk of outsourcing did in the 1990s.

The CFOs and board are looking at the economics of Enterprise Architecture as a blueprint to business transformation. It has been established beyond any doubt that successful organizations have achieved significant performance achievements based on EA-driven initiatives resulting in reduction in IT cost, business process improvement, new service offerings, cost efficiency, readiness for change, etc.

It's been nearly 40 years since John Zachman first endeavored to find the common structure behind every “Enterprise.” With his success, has come the much needed insight into the enterprise anatomy and the evolving discipline that is called “Enterprise Architecture.” This has resulted in the discovery of the fact that every enterprise (in whatever industry) is different, yet there is an underlying common structure of essential components that exist, an ontology: The Zachman Framework - The Enterprise Ontology.

With this background, comes the need for "Zachman Certification" and thus, one of the most productive certification workshops by two of the brightest minds in Enterprise Architecture. Of course, one is the living legend and the author of “Enterprise Architecture” himself - John A. Zachman and the other is an number of our accomplished practitioners who will help you to unravel and practice the science behind the “enterprise.”

This workshop covers the latest version of The Zachman Framework v3.0. It's the most EA-inclusive representation of The Zachman Framework over the last 40 years. This program will prepare the participants for the first two levels of the Zachman Certified- Enterprise Architect program: Zachman Certified™ - Enterprise Architect Associate (Level1) and Zachman Certified™ - Enterprise Architect Practitioner (Level 2).
