Lean Architecture Toolkit Express

Describe your minimum viable architecture

The Lean Enterprise Architecture Toolkit is comprised of different methods from the business domain and the technical domain that help to describe the target architecture of a solution.

Methods from the business domain are used to communicate with stakeholders from business departments as well as business executives and business management. Methods from the technical domain are predominantly used to communicate with stakeholders from IT.

This guided path shows you in what order to complete a minimum set of work products to describe your “Minimum Viable Architecture”.
