Course Objectives and Benefits:
Getting an EA practice started, or making significant improvements to an existing practice, can be a daunting challenge — these topics are only superficially addressed in a very generic, theoretical way in most TOGAF/EA training and cert prep courses. This course is designed primarily for individuals with some prior knowledge of TOGAF®, or EA in general, who seek further practitioner-level guidance on addressing the real-world challenges of actually implementing and integrating a TOGAF-like framework into their particular business and organizational environment. The course provides valuable insights, perspectives, and strategies for establishing an effective EA practice and charter that fits with the realities of the many surrounding business drivers, expectations, cultural/organizational orientations, skills, and planning/management/IT frameworks that already exist in the enterprise. Establishing such a practice — one that effectively integrates with and complements the parent enterprise — is essential to building an EA capability that can deliver real business value. After first providing an overview of the components and key concepts of TOGAF (a refresher for those with prior TOGAF knowledge), the course focuses on making the “Preliminary Phase” of the TOGAF ADM (where EA capability is established) more actionable by introducing many important real-world considerations and practical strategies for developing a well-integrated and high performing EA practice that is aligned with, and even influences, business strategies and goals. For details on course content, view the Detailed Course Topics Outline.
Note: This is a course aimed at improving insights and approaches as a practitioner and there are no formal certifications or exams associated with this course; however, the written exercises at the end of each module are reviewed by EA experts as part of the learning process.
Who Should Take This Course:
This course can greatly benefit individuals, teams, or managers who…
- have prior knowledge of TOGAF/EA and need to take the next step and actually implement/improve an EA practice within their organization
- are studying the generic theory of TOGAF (perhaps via certification prep training) and want to develop, in parallel, a deeper understanding of the practical aspects of defining, aligning, and integrating an EA practice in a particular organization
- want to significantly improve the effectiveness of an existing EA practice and achieve better engagement and integration with business strategy processes and other key management frameworks owned by other organizations
- want a preview of common challenges facing EA practices, and best practice approaches to those challenges, to improve capability maturity assessment, governance, and improvement planning processes for a new or existing EA practice
- want to have on-demand direct access to the course topics, in a self-paced manner that fits with busy schedules and organizational timelines
This course is ideally suited to individuals with prior knowledge/training in TOGAF® and/or other EA frameworks (including those who may already be TOGAF certified). However, individuals who have little or no understanding of TOGAF (or may have forgotten much of their past learning on the topic) may still 1) find the course very useful as a parallel practitioner-oriented learning resource to use along side more generic/theoretical training in EA/TOGAF, or 2) find that the TOGAF overview that is provided in the first module of this course provides a useful jump-start/refresh on the basics of TOGAF that is adequate to understand much of the more practitioner-oriented material that follows.

Course Pricing and Discounts
Our Regular Below-Retail Price: $679 — see additional discounts below:
Even though our $679 regular price for this course is already below suggested retail, our Total-Based Discounts and Special Package Discounts allow you or your team to save far more when purchasing multiple kinds and/or multiple quantities of self-paced and/or instructor-led courses – a great benefit for those acquiring training for teams and organizations with varying needs.
TOTAL-BASED DISCOUNTS for our Self-Paced e-Learning Courses
The total amount of any order you place with us determines the discount percentage applied to any self-paced e-learning courses contained in the order. Your order, whether via the online ordering/payment system here on this site, or via traditional PO, may consist of any number of e-learning courses at various quantities and/or other types of courses and products we offer. The total-based discount brackets are as follows:
5% off e-learning if order total is $2,000 to $5,999 (use coupon code EL-5 )
10% off e-learning if order total is $6,000 to $9,999 (use coupon code EL-10 )
If planning order(s) over $10,000 please contact us — and also note our 15% SPECIAL PACKAGE DISCOUNT described further below.
Determination of Order Total: Any course(s) or other products in your order, at the quantities specified in the order, all count toward the order total range thresholds above; i.e., even an item that is not an e-learning course counts toward the threshold, such as a registration for a public instructor-led TOGAF course.
Discount Applicability: When a total order amount is in the ranges defined above, the specified discount is applied only to the self-paced e-learning courses in the order. While instructor-led course(s) in an order do count toward the total order thresholds, the above discounts are not applied to instructor-led courses. These total-based discounts cannot be applied in combination with any other discount offer, other coupon codes, or other special promotions. Note that if you are interested in ordering a private instructor-led course in combination with one or more self-paced e-learning courses, consider the “15% Special Package Discount” described further below –- a better, more flexible deal that has no minimum spend requirements.
Ordering Methods for Discounts
Orders via Cart: If using our convenient online order/payment system here on our site, simply enter and apply the appropriate coupon code (indicated above) on the Cart page, being sure that all item quantities are properly set before applying the coupon code. After applying, the proper coupon code, the cart will automatically update to reflect the reduced prices and total resulting from the discounts.
Orders via PO: If you cannot take advantage of our convenient online ordering process and need to place your order via a traditional PO, we will offer/apply the same discount policy described above in our quotation.
Discounts for Multiple Orders Over a Time Period: If circumstances result in you distributing your course purchases across multiple orders over a period of time (either via Cart or PO), you can still partially benefit from the discount policy described above. We will allow the total of your prior orders placed within the last 6 months to be applied toward meeting the above thresholds for discounts on new self-paced e-learning course orders. Just contact us before placing any additional orders and we’ll provide you special coupon codes for the Cart (or special quotations for a PO) that reduce the discount thresholds for the new order by the amount of your previous orders from the prior 6 months.
15% SPECIAL PACKAGE DISCOUNT on all Self-Paced e-Learning Courses –
for clients who book a private instructor-led course – no minimum spending required
Clients who book a private instructor-led TOGAF course with us (any size group of 2+, or even 1-on-1, conducted either onsite or online) will receive a 15% discount on all self-paced e-learning course orders placed within 6 months after the private course is booked, regardless of quantity or order size.
This is a great deal for organizations that want to extend TOGAF-related training via self-paced e-learning to other peripheral or remote individuals or groups that do not need, or cannot participate in the more intensive live instructor-led training – the anytime/anywhere access to e-learning courses can greatly increase the reach and accessibility of the training across the organization. Also, some e-learning courses serve as excellent supplemental, deeper-dive, or refresher training for those who have already attended private instructor-led training (example: the “Implementation: TOGAF” elearning course can serve as a more practitioner-oriented supplement for those who have attended a private instructor-led TOGAF certification prep course).
If interested in this special package discount, just contact us about your plans, and whether you intend to order via PO or via our Cart, and we will coordinate with you to ensure that the 15% discount is applied to any and all self-paced e-learning courses you order after your private course is booked.
For information on our very affordable, high quality, instructor-led TOGAF certification-prep course offerings (online or onsite, private 1-on-1 or groups of 2+), please start with the overview provided on the eLearning Launchpad home page.
Special Package Discount Applicability: Applies to any self-paced e-learning courses ordered within the 6 months that follow the placement of a private instructor-led course order. This Special Package Discount cannot be applied in combination with any other discount offer, other coupon codes, or other special promotions.
