Enterprise Architect - trainer, mentor, and coach
About the Instructor
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.
This course explains 3 essential tasks that are part of the enterprise architecture role in making sense of the complexity of an enterprise & its architecture.

- Exploring Options: how to use patterns, models and archetypes to understand architectural domains and to govern change
- Measuring Complexity Using A Simple Framework
- Reducing Complexity Using A Simple Framework
- Simplifying Complexity
- EA Techniques For Simplifying Complexity
- Simplification Through Classification
- Simplification Through Modularization
- Simplification Through Clustering
- Simplification Through Patterns
- The Wall
- Enterprise Architecture Principles For Simplifying Complexity
