AE Black Mountains Model Management Summit

Calling all Model Managers. Ability Engineering is hosting the Model Management Summit for Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect.

Who is it for?

  • EA Model Managers.
  • Learning together and building on each other’s ideas & experience
  • Tackling agreed common problems ***.
  • To develop and deliver transferable skills and solutions that you can apply to your models straight away.
  • It’s “Davos” for Large Enterprise Architect Models

*** Everyone attending will bring a question for the group, and we will work on answering them together. Here are some ideas to get you started…

  • How can we maintain control of our architecture models?
  • What’s the best way to coordinate model contents across programmes and projects?
  • How can we improve the way we do model governance?
  • What can we do to make sure quality doesn’t drop as the model grows?
  • What’s really going on inside our models?
  • … [your question here]

When and where will it happen?

Wednesday February 20th 2019.

  • At a purpose built meeting venue in the Black Mountains in Wales
  • Your ticket includes fantastic locally sourced and prepared food from Abergavenny – home of the renowned Food Festival.
  • To ease travelling we will start at 10am and finish by 4pm.
  • We can collect you from and deliver you to Abergavenny Rail Station.
  • Contact us for local accommodation or travel recommendations.

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.
  • Just £35 per person.

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.
