We reviewed the first page intro to the model.

  • General agreement that this is fine just now

  • Jose suggested there could be a clarifying illustration of where EA fits in the enterprise

  • There could be more on the high level goals and value proposition of EA as a function

  • There could be definitions of terms in a glossary or part of the introduction

We discussed the levels of the model.

  • Agreed on five levels

  • Revised some headings from “ing” to “ed”, to reflect that in the middle levels, the cells will contain criteria for what constitutes maturity at that level -- whereas at level 0, initiation is in progress, and at level 5, continuous improvement is in progress

We discussed the scope of EA.

  • The maturity levels don’t map to scope; scope is a “row”; a high maturity practice could choose to not expand into business domains

  • In general scope of coverage should not be a measure of maturity

We discussed the Coverage section.

  • We probably need to blow out the items here in more detail to make sure we agree on the categories.

We discussed what goes in a cell. Is it:

  • What you are able to do at this level

  • A capability you need to have to be at this level

  • An activity you typically do at this level

  • An activity you need to do to achieve a capability

  • An outcome achieved at this level
