Architecture Skills Framework

This TOGAF chapter provides a set of role, skill, and experience norms for staff undertaking enterprise architecture work. Skills frameworks provide a view of the competency levels required for specific roles. They define the roles within a work area, the skills required by each role, and the depth of knowledge required to fulfil the role successfully. They are relatively common for defining the skills required for a consultancy and/or project management assignment, to deliver a specific project or work package. They are also widely used by recruitment and search agencies to match candidates and roles. Their value derives from their ability to provide a means of rapidly identifying skill matches and gaps. Successfully applied, they can ensure that candidates are fit for the jobs assigned to them. Their value in the context of enterprise architecture arises from the immaturity of the enterprise architecture discipline, and the problems that arise from this.
