  8. 8. Lessons Learnt – Do’s• Visit & spend time with others who are further along with you• Ask questions and always keep engage with the wider community• Have more than one BA doing the modeling• Have full support from the senior management team• Keep pointing out the merits / benefits as you move along• Invest in the analysis• Be committed and have someone with the drive to take it forward• Tailor it and looks at works for you & your institution
  9. 9. Lessons Learnt – Don’t• Don’t talk EA to the business, speak their language• It is not sufficient on its own it needs to be combined with light touch Prince2 or other project management methodology• It is not a magic wand• Don’t have an EA project, but embed as part of new projects• Don’t do it half heartedly• Don’t get bogged down, ask for help.
  10. 10. Next• Embedding EA within our methodology• Where PM Office sits• Engaging Externally – Modelling Bash – Partnering with the states University – Provide student internship – Potential guest lecturing – Still the need for a wider participation group, to keep momentum going. – AND..... Look at EA as more of a strategic tool not just operational!
