From the Back Cover Enterprise Architecture (EA) Turnaround provides a healthy dose of "tough love" as it examines the problems with EA. It does not blame external forces or technologies. It makes EA departments look at themselves the way others perceive them--through IT Investments. This book introduces a new way to look at EA departments: through Investment Driven Enterprise Architecture - IDEA Framework. It defines Ten Deliverables that every EA department should produce to get themselves moving on the right track toward "Architecture Value."

While soft skills are fairly common in the business world, they are often in short supply in the IT Community. By providing a surprising connection between The Seven Elements (Leadership, Relationships, Projects, Organization, Product, Budgets and Processes) and the IDEA Framework, the authors have created and explained an easily implementable and understandable Architecture Plan.
