The Architectural Thinking Framework® has the goal to ensure that all the solutions of an organization fit together in order to balance the dimensions
– customer value
in a way that maximizes the overall value from an enterprise-wide viewpoint in the short and the long term.
The Architectural Thinking Framework®
- complies to three values
- consists of four parts
- that can be used on three scopes of architecture: (i) enterprise, (ii) top-level capability and (iii) solution.
Architectural Thinking is not a process or discipline. Instead, it makes use of a content-oriented framework that defines artifacts and their relations that need to be created by various processes (such as strategy, governance or solution development). The Architectural Thinking Framework® enables consistent, connected, company-wide structures that ensure traceability from business vision to technology implementation. It is lean enough for Agile but works as well with classical project management methods.
