TOGAF Level 1 and Level 2 exam

Image I recently cleared the Level 1 and Level 2 exam together and I believe it was done the hard way. I read the entire TOGAF 9.1 guide two times and that was a weighty tome of about 600 pages. Initially I had a feeling that the topic was like dry dust but I didn’t attend any training session. So I grit my teeth and read all of it in addition to the Level 1 and Level 2 guides.

                    It starting making sense and I understood the subject well enough to confidently take the tests. In my case the guides did not help me get the full picture. The main book was more useful.

                    I have been a technical lead all along and I find that Enterprise Architecture is interesting and it has to work closely with Business Planning, Project/Portfolio management and Operation management. So it requires several skills apart from technical knowledge.

                     The huge set of diagrams recommended to be used in the various phases of the Architecture Development Method(ADM) was another aspect that I liked very much. There is more to write about this at a later stage but it was a refreshing exercise on the whole.
