Enterprise Architect Program

Why the certification is relevant

With the rising importance of Enterprise Architecture today, the Enterprise Architect Program is uniquely designed with training in enterprise architecture modelling and engineering principles as well as project mentoring in the participant’s own project. This ensures the highest level of knowledge transfer and skills building to meet todays cross-disciplinary capability requirements for professionals involved in both existing as well as future projects.

The Enterprise Architect Program including Individual Performance Coaching is offered as a 5-day training program and is designed and certified by the Global University Alliance.

Focus of the Enterprise Architect

The Enterprise Architect Program is based on an intensive 5-day classroom training module and is supported by Individual Performance Coaching on a project selected by the partitioner. The hands-on experience ensures that the enterprise architecture management and modelling skills are applied within the following disciplines:

  • Business Layer Modelling: Business model, service model, process modelling, business workflow, business and system measurements, scorecards, dashboards, and cockpits.
  • Information Layer Modelling: Application component (e.g. logical/physical), application feature, functionality, task and service, and data component, entity, service, and system flow.
  • Technology Layer Modelling: Platform component (e.g. logical/physical), devices and services as well as infrastructure component (e.g. logical/physical) and infrastructure service.

The Enterprise Architect Program can be integrated into any relevant organisation. It does so by adding theory, practice, and modelling capabilities to the practitioner’s skill set.

Individual Performance Coaching

It is only through coaching and building on the participant’s existing knowledge that capabilities are gained and applied.

Individual Performance Coaching is an integrated element of the Enterprise Architect education and training program to ensure that the frameworks, methods, approaches, and modelling principles are customized, adopted, and applied in a real-world project setting with a personalized action plan.

The participant will discover how to drive forth fundamental changes within their organization and to achieve the objectives set in both innovation and transformation projects.

Upon successful completion of this program, you will become a certified Enterprise Architect.

The individual registration fee of €9,800 Euro (excl. VAT) covers tuition, handouts, case materials, and conference facilities. Travel and accommodations are not included.

Important to note is that the Enterprise Architect Program requires input from interested parties as the program is tailored to the individual, team, or organization and is customized with planned dates and locations.

The program includes:

  • 5 days of classroom training
  • Individual Performance Coaching
  • 1 Enterprise Architect Certificate
