Case Study Scene 4
2. Business scenario planning with Jim & Kate
& their staff
For each scenario, identify:
• Opportunities & Threats assumptions
• Business planning directions
Decide which scenario is most likely
Develop EA artefacts for selected future scenario
3. Develop change management plan – current
EA to selected future EA.
Questions
Find a public or private sector enterprises and identify the following
current EA components/artifacts at each level of the EA³ Cube
Framework:
1. Identify current strategic goals, initiatives, and outcome measures.
2. Identify current LOBs, business services, and associated activity/flow
diagrams.
3. Identify current information flows and data documentation in each
LOB.
4. Identify the current IT systems and applications that support
information flows for each LOB.
5. Identify the current IT infrastructure and networks that host IT
systems and applications.
Case Study: Victorian Local Government Ministry
As from 1 April 2014, all 79 Councils in Victoria will adopt a new Local Government
Performance Reporting Framework (LGPRF) in their operations.
For the last two years, all Councils have been involved in the development and pilot testing of
this LGPRF. They are now at the stage of implementing this LGPRF into their operations.
You have been commissioned to develop the LG Ministry's EA artefacts for this LGPRF initiative.
As one of the first steps, you will need to:
1. Identify its current strategic goals, initiatives, and outcome measures
2. Identify current LOBs, business services, and associated activity/flow diagrams.
3. Identify current information flows and data documentation in each LOB.
4. Identify the current IT systems and applications that support information flows for each
LOB.
5. Identify the current IT infrastructure and networks that host IT systems and applications.

Conclusion
You can summarize your analysis findings into a matrix list of
EA artefacts needed for supporting the LG Ministry to
understand and acquire the full service provisioning
capacities in improving its current deployment of its LGPRF
strategy in all 79 Victorian Councils.
This matrix would help identify scope the EA work require.
Discuss how this matrix looks like.
