Common Barriers to Enterprise Architecture

Many enterprise architecture initiatives falter, often from failing to mitigate common and frequently identified resistance factors. Organizational change is a mature concept, and enterprise architecture is the latest phase in what is essentially the ability to identify, drive, and maintain the holistic capabilities of an entire organization. The speed at which organizations change has accelerated, along with their industries, their competitors, and their customers. As enterprises rapidly grow in size, scope, and complexity, they often lack the ability to comprehend their internal capabilities, activities, and thus their costs and effectiveness with any respectable degree of accuracy. This is purpose of enterprise architecture. As organizations grow in size and complexity, the level of difficulty to instill holistic business and technology concepts to the organization’s leadership and culture also increases. Types of barriers include organizational culture(s), leadership execution, methods of communication, and overall enterprise architecture execution.
