"I recommend this book to those readers looking to enhance their existing understanding of collaborative enterprise architecture, and those interested in the benefits of incorporating lean, agile and enterprise 2.0 methods into their practice. I applaud the authors for illustrating their arguments throughout the book with a fictional company and situation to help translate theory into practical use."--ComputingReviews.com, April 11, 2013 "Bente, Bombosch, and Langade have extensive experience in the information technology field…their collective wealth of knowledge based on real-world practices has allowed them to recognize that the collaboration of all stakeholders is a major key to obtaining effective and efficient EA…intended for those with several years of experience in the information technology field."--CHOICE, May 2013 "Collaborative Enterprise Architecture breathes some new thought into a still emerging field… if you are a practicing enterprise architect whose focus is improving your IT organization by working to better align it with the business and to improve its overall effectiveness, then you should read this book."--Software Engineering news, March 2013 "This work for IT practitioners and managers uses a conversational style and a sense of humor as it penetrates the shroud of mystery surrounding enterprise architecture (EA)."--Reference and Research Book News, December 2012 "The value of this book is not only a new look at the use of EA, but many valuable examples referring to practices that will help in everyday’s work of architects. Extensive introduction into the EA domain also allows beginners to familiarize with the subject of EA, while the proposed set of tools helps to organize analytical work."--IEEE Communications Magazine, October 2013

This meta-structure is proposed early in the book, after anecdotal stories about organizational disarray, but only explain at the end of the book and only briefly. The entire book this structure is taken for granted without proper analysis. The author takes the chapters inbetween to spin wheels explaining arbitrarily designated roles an Enterprise Architect might take on and to poorly detail how Enterprise Maturity Models are used. If you want to actually learn about the implementation of these Maturity Models, you'll have to refer to external sources.
When reading a text about meta-structures to guide design, I'm immediately struck by how convoluted those meta-structures can be. This is just such a book. Everything proposed as a framework for Enterprise Architecture is either poorly connected to each other or without any discernible reason. It's a book of platitudes that might be worth remembering in a hard spot, but hardly a systematized look at Enterprise Architecture.
