It is essential for organizations to react quickly and flexibly to changing customer needs and environments. Enterprise Architecture (EA) is a powerful tool for gaining insight into the current and required situations of organizations. What are the pros and cons of Enterprise Architecture? And how does Enterprise Architecture fit in our administrative and operational processes? Experience the principles of Enterprise Architecture in this stimulating business simulation …


Framing the Future is a business simulation for the ‘clients’ of Enterprise Architecture (the business, the project organization) and architects.

Course Duration:

1 day

Learning Objectives:

  • Framing the Future challenges the participants to enter into a dialog together on Enterprise Architecture in relation to the organizational strategy.
  • Framing the Future helps to explain the relevance of Enterprise Architecture to the parties involved at various levels
  • Framing the Future helps participants understand the various methods and applications of Enterprise Architecture and allows them to experiment.
  • Framing the Future shows the relationship between organizational targets and architecture principles
  • The design of the architecture function, with references to relevant methods such as TOGAF ™.

Generic Benefits of Simulations:

You are emerged in a real life simulated environment. You will have to apply and adopt the theory to succeed in the business simulation. The power behind the simulation comes from gamification: game thinking and game mechanics are used in a non-game context to solving problems. This fun, experiential and effective delivery method ensures that new learning ‘sticks’. Mistakes can be made and you will learn from the simulation, your peers and the instructor (game leader).

Benefits of Taking This Simulation:

  • The participant is familiar with the various principles of Enterprise Architecture and understands how they are related (Knowledge)
  • The participant is capable of recognizing roles, targets and responsibilities, and can take action accordingly (Process-based working)
  • The candidate appreciates collaboration and is able to adapt at times in order to be more effective and efficient as a team (Cooperation)
