Course Description

Enterprise Architect - trainer, mentor, and coach

Roger Evernden

My name is Roger Evernden. I’ve been an enterprise architect since 1984, specializing in the highly practical use of EA to manage organizational transformation. I work as advisor, mentor, and coach on EA initiatives, lead training workshops, and write regularly about strategy and architecture. I provide a unique combination of training and tools to help architects and their teams throughout an EA program and at each capability level. These online training modules provide a thorough grounding of all key techniques, with practical examples, exercises, and demonstrations. As architect of the Information FrameWork (IFW), I helped pioneer many contemporary EA techniques, including the use of industry reference models, business capability analysis, and component-based building blocks. My work has been the basis for more than 400 business and IT architecture initiatives worldwide. I write extensively about enterprise architecture and TOGAF®, and my articles have appeared in major publications and books, including the seminal article on IFW in IBM's Systems Journal. I am author of two books about EA: Enterprise Architecture — The Eight Fundamental Factors and 101 Lessons from Enterprise Architecture. I work as an independent consultant, and as a Senior Consultant with Cutter Consortium's Business & Enterprise Architecture practice.
