In october Informed Decision (Håkan Edvinsson and Per Olov Graveleij) will together with Malmö Stad hold a seminar about value based EA governance.
The City of Malmö, the third largest city in Sweden, has experiences from a completely new way of organizing their enterprise architecture within their digitalization strategy. The challenge is to deploy a digitalization strategy in a large organization that fulfills various expectations from citizens, services users, politicians, co-workers and the public, were organizational units have local funding, differs a lot in services, and complies to different laws.
The traditional EA way would include a business capability approach combined with system portfolio planning aiming for a target architecture formed by architects. Instead of such invasive top-down approach, Malmö chose last year to drive, support and govern the digitalization process from stakeholder’s values. City of Malmö is now scoping, prioritizing and coordinating initiatives that strive for the same operational impacts, aiming for the same user or citizen benefits, or share the same improvement value on the society.

other levers, it takes to fulfill them.

for technical similarities towards focusing on outcomes.
