This blog is about Enterprise Architecture, the discipline that attempts to help managing Business-IT complexity and unpredictability. This blog accompanies the book Chess and the Art of Enterprise Architecture. The musings here are a personal opinion and are not connected to any institution, other than that experiences and developments there may end up becoming musings here, though never explicitly referring to the organisation.
