A week in Tweets: 17-23 July 2011

Catch-up time again, with another (somewhat delayed) week’s-worth of Tweets and links. Usual sort-of-categories in the usual sort-of way, with the usual no-quite-sort-of ‘Read more…’ link first:

  • kvistgaard: “meta-” comes first but only afterward >really nice way to put one of the paradoxes of #entarch

A back-and-forth on trust as a theme in enterprise-architecture:

  • greblhad: Where there is no trust enterprise architecture carry little value >trust is key to all #entarch #bizarch etc
  • thoughttrans: @tetradian trust is key to everything!
  • Robert_Phipps: @tetradian @greblhad lack of trust probably accounts 4 #complexity of specific archs but does it really  effect value of #entarch itself?
  • greblhad: @Robert_Phipps @tetradian No trust means low buy in on shared vision, that usually has the effect that people find their own solutions.
  • thoughttrans: @tetradian Look for opportunities to expand not pain. Earn their trust first in a positive sense, not the pain. // orgs need to dramatically change. focus on pain is keeping you in the same paradigm // #entarch #bizarch needs to focus on what is working and expand…the pain will disappear naturally

A reprise on that ‘trust’ theme:

  • Bebela239: RT @HarvardBiz: The Deepest Deficit: Trust http://s.hbr.org/pkfWEe >trust is key in #entarch #economics – if trust is lost, so is the enterprise
  • AussiMike: @tetradian hmm…not clear to me why entarch is any different from the human condition..we rely on trust to interconnect..
  • tetradian: @AussiMike “not clear to me why entarch is any different from the human condition” – it isn’t. that’s the whole point. :-) // (…or, we need to ask why biz so often thinks it _is_ different from ‘the human condition’… :-| )
  • tetradian: [post] Trust and the enterprise http://bit.ly/pBDobh #entarch #bizarch #bmgen #bpm

An interesting ‘enterprise-architecture’ back-and-forth around tattoos, brands and the like:

  • florian__: I wish I were a chef just to justify the cool tats RT @Zagat, @financialtimes http://zagat.bz/o6ppfR >signs/symbols of commitment to the shared-enterprise? #entarch #bizstory
  • tetradian: [post] To understand shared-enterprise, look for the tattoos http://bit.ly/qLXtVv #entarch #ogaus
  • chrisdpotts: RT @tetradian: To understand shared-enterprise, look for the tattoos http://bit.ly/qLXtVv #entarch | Great! (I differ with you re. Brands.) // A Brand is not (simply) a corporate identity, or a generic symbol. It is an emotional commitment, often deep. #entarch #CMO
  • tetradian: @chrisdpotts strong agree re “emotional commitment, often deep” – point i was making is that tattoo is personal, brand is collective // perhaps one difference might be that we commit _to_ a brand, but _with_ a tattoo?
  • chrisdpotts: @tetradian “Look, I don’t wanna be the same as everybody else. That’s why I’m a Mod, see?” Quadrophenia (movie) // This_is_a_valued_symbol_of_your_own_personal_Brand. But I believe it runs deeper than just linking words.
  • tetradian: @chrisdpotts yes, agree. there’s a whole area of #bizarch around brands, seemingly almost unexplored so far: good topic to discuss somewhen?
  • chrisdpotts: @tetradian A much more valuable #entarch topic than the ‘business centric’ one.  From RecrEAtion, you’ll know that I’m experiences-centric.
  • tetradian: @chrisdpotts yep, strong agree.  (we do agree sometimes. :-) )
  • chrisdpotts: @tetradian We need to work on #Brand from the overarching #entarch perspective (ie market) before get down to #bizarch
  • chrisdpotts: @tetradian No we don’t (is this a 5-minute argument, or the full half-hour?) #montypython

Another useful back-and-forth, this time on principles and enterprise-architecture:

  • toddbiske: New #entarch blog post on Principles and Implications, interested in your feedback. http://bit.ly/rmiWn5
  • greblhad: @toddbiske What about the systems thinking where behaviour is a result of systems design.
  • toddbiske: @greblhad Systems behavior might be a result of system design, but people’s behavior is not.
  • greblhad: Every Enterprise must at some point face its history
  • toddbiske: Should principle implications form the basis for your auditable standards and guidelines?  #entarch
  • tetradian: @toddbiske: ‘Systems behavior might be result of system design, people’s behavior is not’ – system is dominant ‘attractor’ for behaviour
  • greblhad: @toddbiske If not by designing systems, then how do you propose to guide people towards a specific behavior?
  • toddbiske: @greblhad It has to be about setting expectations and measuring adherence to those expectations.
  • toddbiske: @tetradian If the activities are system-driven, then system can drive behavior. If the activities are not, then systems have minor influence // Raises a question.  Do I:  1) try to guide correct behavior independent of systems support, or … // Try to add systems that will guide/force correct behavior.
  • chrisdpotts: @toddbiske @tetradian  Actual behaviors=the system.  May not be the same, of course, as a model of the system. #entarch #bizecology
  • toddbiske: RT @chrisdpotts Actual behaviors=the system. < If we define system in this way (I was thinking info system), there’s not much to debate.
  • chrisdpotts: @toddbiske Debate is how best to change the system (i.e. actual behaviors), given a design for how it should behave differently.
  • chrisdpotts: @mikeburke Principles: statements of truth/belief.  Policies: a way of implementing principles.
  • chrisdpotts: @toddbiske #entarch Principles: Design; Behavioral. http://bit.ly/rmiWn5 At a client I was with early 2011, we settled on five of each. // The Behavioral Principles are the solid foundations of #entarch strategy.
  • greblhad: @toddbiske would what you suggest be a part of the design of the whole system?
  • tetradian: @toddbiske [apols for delay] both 1 & 2 – but it’s context-dependent, so study the ‘attractor’ first to choose emphases for each

It is more despotic than a monarchy, more insolent than autocracy, and more selfish than bureaucracy. It denounces as public enemies, all who question its methods or throw light upon its crimes…. corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money powers of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.”
