Today a bit longer than usual on how to get over a bad EA
Let us get back to the basics
If you start as a developer Context Architecture is not what you think it is.
An episode on an old favorite.
Often when talking to executives they suggest to use a specific software as the solution to a problem. Is that really the right way, let´s find out.
In this episode I will talk on a subject that is bound to be even more controversial than my other topics.
Lets continue with system thinking.
Well today I try to describe the enterprise into system thinking.
Now let me discuss a point big in the business press
Well we all know and suffer through decisions by committee, but where got this trend started. Well that is why I want today to talk about Sociocracy.
Let me introduce my way of management that differs a bit from the usual.
I have talked on leadership before and this is a follow up.
Well that is a question many listeners have asked so it is time to answer.
Now I am trying to undo my own work as an exercise in critical thinking
No let me tell you why we need a Data repository and why we never get a Data repository. Sounds strange!
Today let me talk about more in details a problem faced in frameworks not only in EA
Today I will lock at an important factor when you interact.
Finance is properly the most used dimension in our world as EA so I will spare it an episode
Now comes a classic, pro and cons on data repositories.
Now let me battle with SaaS after we all had our experiences with that model
Many people asked me how to start as a new EA Director, so I picked on all the different points I picked up.
Lets look at the different types of EA that may not be too ideal. I have the negative habit of at least two of the types, so I am trying also to be critical with myself here
Lets focus back on the human brain. In the last of these episodes I explained how we multitask but on the conscious level only single task, today I will lock at another important architecture of our operation system.
Let today look at the difference in data projects
Today I will go to pure logic and show where the border of pure logic has been calculated in using nothing than pure math. Some years ago all architect did study math at long and therefore knew Goedels Incompleteness theorems by heart. Since this has changed I will present them today, as I am going to reference them often in the future.
This week is all about global EA. This is really part 1. Enjoy!
Well stress as an EA is certainly dealing with many stakeholders, but let us take a closer look!
Today I will talk about the inherit problems we have with language and models, so with the limitations on Ontology. I have experienced that many EA and other communication professionals actually have never been introduced to W V Quines work on "Word and Object" from 1960 so that is why I mention it here with the consequences in this short episode.
This week I am going for a third episode on something very seldom mentioned
Today let us focus one one of the big ones
Many know this paradox from oil demand in economics, but let me show where this matters in our area.
Today I will discuss something that most EA hate, but there is a good reason.
Since many architectures work around the globe lets talk about Global System Architecture
Since you using social media by downloading this episode you may be interested exploring social media and EA
Today I will lock at risk management in the financial area and look how it affects EA
Today a fun episode with a sting. I will talk about:
The heaviest element known to science was recently discovered by university physicists. The element, tentatively named "Administratium," has no protons or electrons and thus has an atomic number of 0. However, it does have one neutron, 15 assistant neutrons, 70 vice neutrons, and 161 assistant vice neutrons. This gives it an atomic mass of 247. These 247 particles are held together in the nucleus by a force that involves the continuous exchange of meson-like particles called "morons." Since it has no electrons, Administratium, is inert.
However, it can be detected chemically as it impedes every reaction with which it comes in contact. According to discoverers, a minute amount of Administratiumadded to one reaction caused it to take over four days to complete. Without theAdministratium, the reaction occurs in less than one second. Administratium has a half life of approximately three years, at which time it does not actually decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which assistant neutrons, vice neutrons and assistant vice neutrons exchange places. Studies seem to show that the atomic mass actually increases after each reorganization.
Research indicates that Administratium occurs naturally in the atmosphere. It tends to concentrate in certain locations such as governments, large corporations, and especially in universities. It can usually be found polluting the best appointed and best maintained buildings. Scientists warn that Administratium is known to be toxic and recommend plenty of alcoholic fluids followed by bed rest after even low levels of exposure.
This is the last one in this series. The next 20 episodes I do not plan to do any multi part series, but more thinking episodes.
After the interruption on the special episode I will continue with the C-Level and EA.
OK, usually I do not do anything related to happenings, however the disclosures of the last few month and their impact are so big to EA that I am forced to this episode. However if you after any moral or political comment you will be disappointed, as I will limit myself only on the EA aspect.
Today I will look at the CEO and COO and explain the EA interaction that are very much dependent on size and setup of the enterprise.
Today I will talk about the interaction of the EA and the CIO. Does that mean Chief Investment Officer. It actually may!
This week I am on holiday so I will publish when I am connected. This weeks episode is the opposite of last weeks. Enjoy
Today an episode that requires you to think more than usual, so recommend not listening at the same time as doing some other brain demanding task.
Given that I am going on holiday I will just publish one episodes for some weeks, so expect 2 episodes per week in three weeks.
Well leaving my usual track, today I will talk about something many people have asked for. Please always remember that this is not an area I am trained, so please always ask for professional help as well
Well no we come to the really interesting part. Is EA right for a shareholder organisation?
Today I will lock at another differentiation that requires different ways to do EA
On strategies I still need to cover the technology element.
Forecasting is an area often not looked at by EA and as such often people always do the same thing year to year.
Well lets go for next step in strategy and today I will go in the baby products industry for examples
