Part 4 of 22: Are Business Strategies Primitives or Composites?
Are Business Strategies Primitives or Composites?
In this 22 part Enterprise Architecture conversation, John Zachman and Sunil Dutt Jha discus "Composites" versus "Primitives". Any implementation, by definition, is a Composite because like chemical compounds, Composites are what exist as instantiations. John takes a strategy statement by illustration and shows how to parse out the Primitive components and makes the observation that any Composite that does not have representation of all six Primitives may be useful, but is likely incomplete and probably a source of Enterprise defects.
