In March 2007 Charles delivered his first talk about the Agile EA operational process at the Togaf Conference in Cape Town South Africa. Read up on the content here:
This series of papers considers the case for enhancing the good work the Open Group contributors have already produced in TOGAF 8.1 , by defining an lean and mean Enterprise Architecture (EA) Practice Process that can be picked up and used with minimal tailoring to get an EA Practice started quickly. Enterprise Architects starting a new practice say “There is so much to do and so much complexity. Where do we start? How do we move forward in a structured and well defined way, but still add value to the organisation quickly?”
The goal of this second paper is to suggest using existing standards to drive out solutions to the problems EA Practices face (as posed in the previous Part 1 paper). To suggest a set of standards upon which an Agile Enterprise Architecture Process could be more specifically defined. Processes to help Enterprise Architects get started quickly and easily. Enhancements to the TOGAF process are to be based primarily on the newer and beneficial thinking Agile and Adaptive  principles, but on other influences as well.

Abstract – Agile EA Operational Roles
The subject of People’s jobs, Positions and Roles always tend to get somewhat confusing as there are such subtle differernces between them. However roles are useful in defining activities and responsibilities for those activities, so they need to be defined.
This paper explores each type and offers suggestions for how to organise an Agile Enterprise Architecture team based along the lines of Roles, but keeps the concept of positions and jobs.

How does anyone coming in fresh, not having seen this Enterprise Architecture Operational Process before, start to get into understanding what the AgileEA operational Process is all about?
This paper gives an analogy we all understand; a Pub Menu. This leads you into an equivalent choices in AgileEA so that you get the general idea of what the phases and capabilities within the process are and how to configure them to suit your own situation.
