EA for Business Architecture

This course is aimed at business architects who are new to Enterprise Architect. It covers the ArchiMate business layer for modelling business organisation, processes and products, the motivation extension for identifying stakeholders, drivers, goals and requirements as well as strategy elements that focus on capabilities.
Duration: 2 days

Prerequisites: No prior Enterprise Architect experience is required.
A background in business architecture and ArchiMate notation is helpful.
Equipment: For on-site delivery the customer should provide a suitable training room with a screen or projector to connect to our trainer's laptop and a whiteboard or flipchart. All delegates require a PC or laptop running Enterprise Architect.
For webinar delivery delegates require a PC or laptop running Enterprise Architect with an Internet connection (a headset can be helpful). If you wish to test your environment join a test WebEx meeting:
A trial version of Enterprise Architect is fine for training and can be downloaded from Sparx Systems website: It is also helpful to have a mouse as this makes creating diagrams much easier.
Course Style: 45% theory, 55% practical.
Each module is accompanied by a hands-on exercise to allow delegates to apply the theory and become confident using Enterprise Architect.
