As the enterprise architecture programs increase in importance for government, non-profit and private sector organizations, a growing challenge is acquiring the resources and skills for successful EA practitioners.  Professional education is a solution to this challenge.  Penn State University’s Center for Enterprise Architecture would like to help our profession by understanding the market needs and preferences for training, which will be used by Penn State and other organizations to develop training offerings best suited to practitioner needs.

To help us get this market insight, we’ve developed a short 12 question survey (hosted by Forrester Research, a Center partner). We ask that you send this survey to people in your organization.  Our goal is to get 500 responses, and to have this survey completed by August 31, 2013. All responses are anonymous.  We will share the results with you, so that you can share with your membership.

Following is a sample email, which we offer for you to put into your own communications, so that your members understand the importance of this research.  Please consider sending this relevant people in your organization.

 

Thank you,
