How do you gauge the "worth" of an Enterprise Architect Certification Workshop? To me, there is one overriding criteria - can I actually develop an Enterprise Architecture? Of course, this cannot be gauged the day after the education and workshop sessions. Sam Holcman said that his intent in the Workshop is preparing us to do Enterprise Architecture "...on Monday morning" - providing the necessary methodology, tools, templates, framework, project management work breakdown structure, and support materials. Not only was I prepared, but we launched a Quick Start Enterprise Architecture effort, as we were taught in the Workshop. I can now, after a new months of effort, say that our organization produced, and is now enabling the Enterprise Architecture we developed. The true testimonial to this Workshops effectiveness.
