Hi All,

Can we use "enterprise architecture" concepts in SCRUM environments ?

I am currently pursuing TOGAF certification, the course details enterprise architecture (EA) concepts/processes for delivering complex / large front-to-back projects . Is there any option to do this in SCRUM way ? (agile !)

I see loads of documentation on internet (blogs and papers) - what I want to know is any standard / defined approach that details/guides on how enterprise architecture can go Agile.

Thanks and appreciate your help.

You can, but they are best seen in terms of architectural emergence, and the maintenance of architectural runway. A Development Team should have enough architecture in place to facilitate Sprint Planning and delivery, but not so much that technical debt and rework is incurred.
