Enterprise Architecture and IT Teams

The posting Actionable Enterprise Architecture through Feedback by Nick Malik is a nice writeup on the value of feedback between EA and IT teams. The core concept is simple - both parties need to operate in a feedback loop. Nick provides three examples of loops worth developing. The article is well worth a read.

What's at stake? How about an answer in the form of two questions:

Would you want an architect to build your house?
Would you like the construction crew to architect it?
And yes, I normally dislike resorting to a comparison between building architecture and enterprise architecture, but it does have its uses.
