What will it cost?

Just £35 per person.

Practical Info

  • We have just 20 places available - to make sure that everyone has the chance to contribute.
  • Ideally just one person from each organisation – to get the widest possible selection of model problems/perspectives.

How will it work?

Beforehand:

Each person coming will submit at least one ‘problem statement’ of a particular aspect of model management in EA that they are grappling with.
Problem statements to include as much supporting information as possible.
These will be accessible by everyone in a private Google group for a few weeks so that everyone can comment/discuss and think about them beforehand.
From the problem statements and discussions, we select 6 that are representative of the whole or of wide interest/application. (Selection date = Thursday 31/01/19)
 
On the day:

The authors of those 6 problems will give a short (no more than 9 minutes each) presentation to the assembled Summit.
Everyone present votes, and the top 3 are chosen to be workshopped.
We split into teams and each team works on one of the three chosen issues.
Each team comes up with some options/impacts/recommendations and presents back to the whole Summit for review and comment.
 
And after:

That will be up to you

Ability Engineering: Training, Consulting, Mentoring

Ability Engineering has recently added three new offerings to their Enterprise Architect training portfolio. 


The first new course is Enterprise Architect for teams. This is completely new content, distilled from many years of experience (and lessons learned the hard way) working in a range of organisations and with many different models. This training covers all the issues that an organisation needs to address in order to make its Enterprise Architect implementation successful.

EA for teams is a day long workshop which covers the practicalities of structuring your models and setting up your project team to work together effectively. Topics include:

  • Sharing Enterprise Architect data
  • Baselines, XMI and DIFFS
  • Reference Data
  • Reusable Asset Service
  • Security
  • Harvesting
  • Scripts
  • MDGs
  • Organisation and Roles
  • Rolling out Enterprise Architect

EA in a Day

The EA in a Day format has been developed in response to customer demand, to rapidly bring team members up to speed to focus on a particular technique and how to model it in Enterprise Architect. There are currently two 'flavours' of EA in a Day:

1. EA in a Day: Use Cases

This course covers Best Practice in Use Case modelling using Structured Scenarios. Using examples and exercises, delegates learn how to build 'fully dressed' use cases and some common bear traps to avoid. In the afternoon delegates are then hands on in Enterprise Architect, modelling their morning's work.

2. EA in a Day: BPMN 2.0

This course looks at the technique of business process modeling: when to use it, how to do it, and what tools to use. It doesn’t try to teach everything about BPMN – there’s just too much to take in at one sitting, so we cover a workable, practical sub-set. With examples and exercises to reinforce the concepts.

Using the results of the exercises completed in the morning, we then explore the BPMN 2.0 implementation in Enterprise Architect, model the processes and discover hints and tips to make our analysis clear and, where appropriate, re-useful.

This White Paper looks at ways to create project documents that improve project quality, provide readers with relevant, easily navigated information, and give new insights. Using EA and eaDocX, approaches are described that can bring our project communications into the 21st Century.

This White Paper looks at ways to transform our project documents, helping readers to find and use information that is relevant to them. 

In both Waterfall and Agile developments, excellent documents can improve project quality and give new insights. New document capabilities allow authors to create high quality, accurate and targeted documents, and allow readers to navigate their way through them in an intuitive way. 

By storing information in EA, and using eaDocX, approaches are described that can bring our project communications into the 21st Century.  Documents which:

- contain only content which is relevant to the reader

- provide a range of presentation styles 

- engage and hold the reader's attention

- guide the reader as to where they should concentrate their attention

- give the reader freedom to navigate the document’s contents as they wish
