EA isn't IT architecture. That is a piece of it, but not the most important one. Changing or transforming what the business is at its core is real EA. Analytical and design models can help. EA is the way an organization looks at itself, measures itself and its willingness to change that is most important. There are tools, frameworks and various disciplines on the market that can help. It is all about transformation and making the process of doing transformation as important as doing the budget.

How comes the authors find "too much standardization" being a bad thing. What kind of unintended negative consequences of standardization result? Are there any practical examples what happens if too much standardization is pushed forward by EA?
