Enterprise Architecture and Alignment with the Business

Don't worry about getting the IT shop in order and instead focus on harder things like the notion of alignment...

The next time you talk with business customers, avoid like the plague telling them about how you are helping enable the strategic intent of the business through the use of technology, helping reduce the cost of IT or even helping them receive higher quality valuable working software and instead insert any of the below bullet points into each and every sentence.

  • Best Practices

  • Thinking outside the box

  • At the end of the day

  • Synergy

  • Rationalization

  • Paradigm

  • BPM

  • Low hanging fruit

  • Core competencies

  • Compliance

  • Manage expectations

  • Strategic

  • Best of breed

  • Drop the ball

  • Good to Great

  • Raise the Bar

  • After all, perception is reality...
