Purpose of this Assignment
This assignment gives you the opportunity to apply your understanding of the course concepts to analyze how the enterprise architecture (EA) affects various elements of the organization. This assignment specifically addresses the following course outcome:
One of the keys to successful enterprise architecture (EA) implementation is the support offered by important stakeholders.
Stakeholders are those with an interest in a given project. There are varying degrees of stakeholder involvement, which may be described as being in the following groups:
The benefits of successfully managing stakeholders include the following:
(Concepts contained herein were derived in part from The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF), v. 9.)
Using the DMV Case Study and the Stakeholder Analysis Exercise spreadsheet provided, you are to complete the columns of the spreadsheet for each of the ten stakeholder groups listed on the spreadsheet.
Please refer to the reading link in your Course 5 content area called: TOGAF Standard: Stakeholder Management. This link provides some excellent insights into the different roles and influences of the stakeholders to assist in your assignment. Again, this is just a reference for your benefit.
First, explain the interest or concern that the stakeholder has in the development of the EA. Then, identify their “class” or role in the EA as one of the four shown above (Key Player, Keep Satisfied, Keep Informed, or Minimal Effort). Finally, explain your reasoning for selecting the class/role that you did.
Important: You are not being graded on whether you picked the “correct” stakeholder involvement (i.e. key player, keep satisfied, keep informed or minimal effort). You might see your Security Officer as a key player or as a stakeholder needing to be kept informed. This is fine. What is important is that you provide a solid reason for why you chose this classification as it relates to the interest/concern area. Please only pick one “class” or role per stakeholder.
Complete the spreadsheet and submit it via your Assignments Folder by the due date shown in the class schedule. Note: The filename of your submission should include your last name. An example would be: Smith_Stakeholder_Analysis.xls.
