While working on two papers on the service oriented architecture and solution architecture, I have been thinking about how scenario planning and enterprise architecture could be combined in order to develop a better framework for strategic planning in organizations. That is one of the reasons why I have been working with a literature review exploring the various options of how to combine the two concepts through the role of the enterprise architect, and how the enterprise architect can deal with the two.
Bernard (2012) suggested that the enterprise architect could engage the various decision makers of the enterprise in order to facilitate and document the scenarios of which a business strategy. The enterprise architect can through the inputs from the strategy develop a new business architecture for the business. I believe that the business architecture is the framework for how the business can ensure execution of its strategy through projects and through business processes. Nevertheless, I will explore the topics further, while I am writing on the papers.
