Open Agile Architecture (O-AA) is a brand new standard published by The Open Group in the second half of 2020. It contains a lot of useful techniques for agile and digital transformation of the architecture of the organisation.
Compared to other standards it focuses on current needs of architects and offers a number of concrete practical examples.
O-AA combines proven procedures into a coherent and functional unit. In addition to the standard, the course also includes many examples from the practice of our consultants and trainers which we use to explain how we design and control the architecture in an agile organisation.
On top of the content defined by The Open Group consortium we added additional content which shows how to design and manage the architecture in an agile environment.
