Enterprise Architecture Standards
The Enterprise Architecture Standards are the result of international industry experts and academic consensus. The standards are both agnostic and vendor neutral and are built on repeatable patterns that can be reused and replicated, and thereby implemented by any organization, both large and small, regardless of its various enterprise engineering activities.
We realize that organizations apply various architecture methods and approaches e.g. TOGAF, META, FEAF, etc. as well as various disciplines, such as Business Architecture, Information Architecture and Data Architecture, etc. Therefore, we have ensured that all of our published Enterprise Architecture Standards have a structured Way of Thinking, Working, Modelling, Implementation and Governance.
To ensure full integration with other methods and approaches within an organization, the enterprise architecture standards have an ontology and semantic concept built in that allows for the meta objects to be reused in the other enterprise standards as well as the industry standards.
This includes applying the various standards:
- Engineering Principles - how and where it can or needs to be decomposed and composed together.
- Modelling Principles - which design concepts can or should be applied.
- Architecture Principles - which architecture rules apply and which artifacts and templates (e.g. maps, matrices and models) could or should be applied.
Creating the ability to "Align, Compare & Unify" different enterprise standards together as well as combine them with the industry standards (or vice versa) in combining the relevant aspect e.g. meta objects.
Developing a whole new concept of agile integration and standardization in the following 14 enterprise architecture disciplines and areas:

Please note that the Enterprise Architecture Standards are only open for the LEADing Practice community members, however, some material has been made publicly available for review purposes.
Our community consist of organizations applying our LEADing Practice Enterprise Standards e.g. practitioners, software vendors and academics. Being a community-driven open architecture and open standard access to all assets, templates, tools and artifacts is free for certified practitioners, thereby ensuring that modelling principles are applied correctly.
While it is free to join the community and no cost apply to the use of any community assets, the quality of the participating practitioners must be guaranteed, by being LEAD certified in the specific field of where they work. For organizations interested in applying LEADing Practices, we recommend contacting us and highlighting the objective and key challenges, whereafter a practitioner will be assigned to support you.
