This blog contains personal opinions and reflections belonging to me, Niklas Falk-Andersson, and must not be interpreted as statements affiliated with my employer.
Here you will find short notes from moments of real world successes and failures in building an enterprise architecture community of practice. The enterprise is the hospitals, IT and management organizations within the public health administration of northern Norway.
The practice described here is developed as a collaborative effort of a team of architects and their management.
All results referred to here with respect to the practice is an outcome of this team effort and is attributed to the team and the managers directly involved. Exceptions will be noted.
I might occasionally invite someone who can actually write to contribute. If so, I will make sure it is clear who the author is.

I have co-authored a chapter in the book Requirements Engineering for Digital Health at Springer and have contributed to a few science articles within the Telemedicine and eHealth field.
