Planning and Control
The requirements, including estimates based on Impact of Change Analysis (ICA) from several sources are integrated. These sources are:
- Strategic Planning
- Architecture Foundational Plans
often both integrated into
- Multi-year Information Planning
- Transition Management plans
- Change Management plans
Problems and Solutions
Often the planning is focused on solving a problem when the time-frame is for the short and middle-long term. The result can be that several activities on the same Knowledge Functions, as well as other parts of the Capabilities, within the same time-frame are delivering solutions, making each solution a threshold for the other solutions. With the Enterprise Architects approach planning is performed based on the Capability components especially the Knowledge Functions.
