Design for story: Episode 85, Tetradian on Architectures

Episode 85 – Design for story

“The enterprise is a story” – what does that mean? Why is it so important for enterprise-architecture? And how does it affect design of solutions, processes, metrics and more, throughout the organisation? This episode explores those questions and their practical implications for enterprise-architecture.

The short-answer to each of these questions is that ‘enterprise-as-story’ describes and explains the storyworld within which the organisation positions itself. It provides – in fact defines – the themes that connect together the various actors in the enterprise, as players in a shared story, and that also underpin values, success-criteria, trust and more. The architecture for the organisation develops from that understanding of story and storyworld: we cannot develop a meaningful enterprise-architecture without it.
