About this event

Course Overview:

This practical course shows the delegates what is needed to establish a functioning and integrated Enterprise Architecture Practice using TOGAF. The course provides the delegates with many opportunities to undertake the activities required, to define, identify and measure the outputs they create.

This is a three-day course with extensive delegate interaction and exercises designed to provide takeaways that will provide the basis of setting up a function EA Practice.

The course will integrate the activities through the use of an industry best-practice Open Group accredited tool to support the in-class activities.

Target Audience:

  • Newly-appointed EA Managers
  • Chief architects (experienced EA practitioners)
  • Lead architects
  • Project and programme managers.

Learning Objectives:

Individuals certified at this level will have demonstrated their understanding of:

  • Recognise and remember TOGAF v9.1
  • Understand the Preliminary Phase
  • Recognise the need for an Enterprise Architecture Practice (EAP)

Benefits of Taking This Course:

On completion of the course you will be able to embark on a substantive piece of Enterprise Architecture with confidence and aplomb. On Day 1, you will know about the necessary team, how to set up the processes, the relative worth of each of the academic aspects vis a vis the on-the-ground pragmatics.

Appreciation of who are the likely sources of useful information, beyond the ‘have-to-speak-to’ people will be sharpened up, leading to more efficient use of resource. Some enhancement of political awareness and people-problem solving will underpin the confidence levels.

There will be a better understanding of the necessary role played by tooling and an understanding of the importance of EA/Design process interfaces between the protagonists in large and complex processes such as JIT supply/receipt, outsourcing, regulatory weight etc. and in general the intersections of multiple interested business functions.



  • TOGAF Level 2 Certification (highly recommended as many of its best practices are incorporated in this practical course)
  • Experience as an architect, preferably as a chief architect or have been a lead architect on one or more projects
  • Delegates are expected to be able to model and understand modelling techniques and some organisational design


  • Some experience in the practical application of TOGAF
  • Management and project/programme management experience

Follow-on Courses:
