I wanted to say that I very much enjoyed the workshop. The course was broken down into modules in such a way that participants could easily digest the material.
I will say, without reservation, that this workshop has really opened my eyes with respect to understanding the potential and very significant value this method can bring to an organization. You did an amazing job walking our group through the various models and educating us on the very important distinction between "ontologies" vs "taxonomies" when creating our models.
Thank you again for sharing your wisdom!!

I really enjoyed and learned so much from the workshop and has been trying to apply what you taught there.

As class ended on Friday I didn’t have time to pass on to you my appreciation for your class…it truly was one of the best courses I have attended. I have been a IT business analyst for 17 years and all through last week I kept reflecting back to my past projects thinking how much better they would have been if I only knew what I know now. Well, now I know.
My best to you and your team, who’s effort and delivery of value to all is outstanding and unprecedented and greatly valued by all.

I really like using the EACOE tool to consolidate all my analysis with my customers. It is a quick and simple way to organize and show how their entire organization is / isn’t related. Plus, I use it to show what systems will be impacted if we have new processes and potential new tools.
I thoroughly enjoyed the EACOE course. The course was simply AWESOME !!!!!

I just wanted to thank you again for an outstanding learning experience last week. Honestly, one of the best training/hands-on workshops I’ve ever attended!
Many thanks for the course – certainly help cement a number of new ideas and provided much food for thought. The reality that you provided that IT is immature has especially changed the way I view a number of things and helped me reconsider how I approach “problems” and people. I am looking forward to growing into an experienced enterprise architect …
Really appreciate benefiting from your knowledge, experience and hard earned lessons learned! It made the class quite valuable!!
Thank you for a very information and hands-on approach towards learning about Enterprise Architecture concepts and principles.

The workshop was superb. Your presentation of the material was superb and your humor was appreciated, although laughter was not heard because we were all on mute in the Distance Learning format! I’m hopeful that I can push our EA team to work on a small initiative within the next month to demonstrate the value of the framework. Ahh, those other priorities always seem to get in the way of real progress.
Many thanks for a great workshop. The week went by like the days were hours.
Thank you for a very worthwhile experience this past week. The materials, lecture and group exercises will prove most useful in my work. It helped me formalize my understanding of work I have been doing for some time.

Wanted to thank you for the workshop. I believe that what you presented can be immediately applied with little cost (meaning tools) and can be easily adopted.
It was pleasure meeting you during the workshop, certainly was an eye-opener. Slowly incorporating some of what’s learned during the workshop and am excited about incorporating more – Thank you!
The class last week was great! It gave me a good sense of affirmation in the things we are doing already as well as taught me a bunch of new tricks. I look forward to sharing my and our accomplishments with you.

Great workshop! Your approach to EA will close an existing gap I had with the planning elements of EA. Here, our EA governance approach works very at the project level and has been ingrained into our culture. It’s been aligning projects to strategy where many disconnects have been occurring for a wide range of reasons. I have already set up meetings with EA supporters within leadership ranks to debrief and organize next steps. I’ll keep you informed as to how it’s going.
Thanks again for leading one of the best workshops I’ve attended in my 30+ year career. Good Stuff. I’m a believer in your teaching and will do my best to carry what I learned forward! Cliff, Chris and I are already putting a plan of action in place. We will keep you informed of our success!!

Thank you for your effort, enthusiasm and passion. I found the materials and course information to be invaluable and I will be carrying the EA flag forward in our organization and in our domain.
Thank you very much for the training. I cannot express in words the value of your training. It figures in my top list of educational trainings I have attended.
Thank you for the workshop last week. It was eye-opening and fun at the same time.
