The goal is to create an IT architecture capability guidebook based on a people-first approach that conveys best practices and learning objectives at each level of architectural growth. This guidebook will also assist hiring managers, business managers and human resource representatives.

As you digest the ITABoK capabilities we ask that you realize that while this knowledge base has existed for many years, and has undergone countless upgrades and discussions, that this is the first time it has been published in this format. As such, we are ACTIVELY SEEKING to get your constructive feedback so that we can get it fully normalized and edited. We understand that some of our readers will not agree with all of the content and we want your feedback, but simple negative comments will be rejected.

Disclaimer: This Capability Guidebook is a current work in progress. Note that some of these are in draft form, and not final versions, so comments are welcome for improvements and additions. If you would like to be a full author, please email us at
