The Enterprise Architecture (EA) Turnaround provides a healthy dose of "tough love" on why there are problems with EA. It does not blame external forces or technologies. It makes EA departments look at themselves the way others perceived them – through IT Investments. This book introduces a new way to look at EA department; through Investment Driven Enterprise Architecture (IDEA) Framework.
It defines ten (10) deliverables that every EA department should produce to get themselves onto (started on) right tracks for their "Architecture Value."
