TOGAF ADM - Test your knowledge on the open enterprise architecture framework

Many architects have heard of TOGAF. But how well do you know TOGAF? Even after years of being certified!

One of the most import models in this Enterprise Architecture Framework is the ADM, the Architecture Development Method Cycle.

We have made that picture clickable / interactive on Dragon1.

Can you answer ten tough questions on TOGAF? Want to find out? Then do the TOGAF ADM Quiz here.

Please share this quiz with all your friends and see who is the smartest TOGAF Architect out there!

About the Architecture Development Method (ADM)

The ADM supports three ways working with it:

  • Cycling around the ADM - The ADM is presented in a circular manner indicating that the completion of one phase of architecture work directly feeds into subsequent phases of architecture work.
  • Iterating between the phases - TOGAF describes the concept of iterating across phases (e.g., returning to Business Architecture on completion of Technology Architecture).
  • Iterating within a single phase - TOGAF supports repeated execution of the activities within a single ADM phase as a technique for elaborating architectural content.

When doing the steps in the ADM phases, several types of deliverables are produced. For example.

  • Architecture Requirements
  • Process flows
  • Project Plans
  • Project compliance assessments

What is a Deliverable?

A deliverable is a work product that is contractually specified and in turn formally reviewed, agreed, and signed off by the stakeholders. It will typically be archived at the completion of a project or transitioned into an Architecture Repository as a reference model

we will now describe briefly the Phases of the ADM by means of the suggested steps and deliverables per phase

ADM Preliminary Phase

Phase Description:

The preparation and initiation activities required to create an Architecture Capability including customization of TOGAF and definition of Architecture

Output Deliverables:

  • Architecture principles
  • Architecture repository
  • Business principles, business goals, and business drivers
  • Organization model for enterprise architecture
  • Request for architecture work
  • Tailored architecture framework

ADM Phase A: Architecture Vision

Phase Description:

The initial phase of an architecture development cycle. It includes information about defining the scope of the architecture development initiative, identifying the stakeholders, creating the Architecture Vision, and obtaining approval to proceed with the architecture development

Output Deliverables:

  • Architecture principles
  • Architecture roadmap
  • Architecture vision
  • Business principles, business goals, and business drivers
  • Capability assessment
  • Communications plan
  • Statement of architecture work
  • Tailored architecture framework

ADM Phase B: Business Architecture

Phase Description:

Business Architecture: the development of a Business Architecture to support the agreed Architecture Vision

Output Deliverables:

  • Architecture definition document
  • Architecture principles
  • Architecture requirements specification
  • Architecture roadmap
  • Business principles, business goals, and business drivers
  • Statement of architecture work

ADM Phase C: Information Systems Architecture

Phase Description:

Information Systems Architectures: the development of Information Systems Architectures to support the agreed Architecture Vision

Output Deliverables:

  • Architecture definition document
  • Architecture principles
  • Architecture requirements specification
  • Architecture roadmap
  • Statement of architecture work

ADM Phase D: Technology Architecture

Technology Architecture: the development of the Technology Architecture to support the agreed Architecture Vision

Output Deliverables:

  • Architecture definition document
  • Architecture principles
  • Architecture requirements specification
  • Architecture roadmap
  • Statement of architecture work

ADM Phase E: Opportunities & Solutions

Opportunities & Solutions conducts initial implementation planning and the identification of delivery vehicles for the architecture defined in the previous phases

Output Deliverables:

  • Architecture definition document
  • Architecture requirements specification
  • Architecture roadmap
  • Architecture vision
  • Capability assessment
  • Implementation and migration plan
  • Statement of architecture work

ADM Phase F: Migration Planning

Migration Planning addresses how to move from the Baseline to the Target Architectures by finalizing a detailed Implementation and Migration Plan

Output Deliverables:

  • Architecture building blocks
  • Architecture definition document
  • Architecture requirements specification
  • Architecture roadmap
  • Change request Implementation and migration plan
  • Implementations governance plan
  • Request for architecture work
  • Statement of architecture work

ADM Phase G: Implementation Governance

Implementation Governance provides an architectural oversight of the implementation

Output Deliverables:

  • Change request
  • Compliance assessment
  • Solution building blocks
  • Statement of architecture work

ADM Phase H: Architecture Change Management

Architecture Change Management establishes procedures for managing change to the new architecture Requirements Management examines the process of managing architecture requirements throughout the ADM
