This month, a team from Architecting the Enterprise enjoyed two days meeting with clients old and new to discuss how we can support their Architecture teams on their personal development journey.
Caroline Byford (Head of Global Sales & Operations) kicked the Summit off for us by participating in the Summit Solution Snap Shot giving a fantastic 60 second overview of the Personal Development Programme that we have developed for those working in the Enterprise Architecture space.
After a busy day, we enjoyed sharing an ice cream and hearing about your plans for investing in and developing the skills of your teams. We also had many interesting conversations about the Gartner sessions which had proved to be both thought-provoking and informative.
A reoccurring theme from our discussions was the best way to complement existing technical skills by working to improve the communication between IT and Business areas of the Organisation. This can be addressed by participation in our Elevating Enterprise Architecture training where delegates will learn more about effective communication, working in EA teams and stakeholder management. Delegates also work on creating a Value Proposition to support their projects thereby improving the chances of a successful EA programme.
Delegates can also further enhance this training by taking a one-to-one personal assessment giving them tools and techniques to support their strengths and overcome their weaknesses.
Finally, a big thank you to all of you who made the time to come and talk to us. We hope to see you at the next Gartner Enterprise Architecture Summit in London on the 21st – 22nd of May 2014 and we look forward to hearing about your successes!
In the meantime if you would like any further information please contact sales@architecting-the-enterprise
