Another Lesson Learned the Hard Way

In one of his “Planning a State-of-the-Art Financial System” seminars, Al Enzweiler used the name of a client’s CFO as an example of a senior manager who had participated in the seminar and got answers to questions and sage advice on how;

  • Managers could use customer demand forecasting models correlated to supply chain planning models, Actual vs Plan dashboards, analytics of Actual vs Plan data and synchronized data maintained by using an ERP System, to hit their metric targets for delivering quality manufactured products to customers on-time as promised to consistently make their contributions to hitting top line targets on Income Statements
  • An ERP System could be configured to demonstrate that a system that had been architected and developed or acquired by an IT supplier to be sold to and used by their customers to hit fat margin top line targets on their Income Statement, could be implemented for a small budget as negotiated and planned by an Architecture Team to be used by their enterprise to maintain synchronized data used by managers to hit their metric targets using integral parts of Targets Systems and used as an integral part of State-of-the-Art Financial System(s) to realize productivity gains maintaining their enterprise’s financial data required to publish their enterprise’s financial statements required to pass an audit by a CPA firm

After participating in a one-day seminar, the CFO decided to be an initial member of an Architecture Team responsible for completing Enzweiler’s Architecture Team Methodology. The next week a seminar participant hired an initial member of a client’s Architecture Team.

After learning that lesson the hard way, Al Enzweiler decided it was in his client’s best interest to quit publishing their names.

Evaluating Consulting Firm’s Which Use an Architecture Team Methodology

Deciding not to publish the names of Enzweiler’s clients was an easy decision for Al Enzweiler to make. In 2022 consulting firms which are still proposing an Architecture Team Methodology which starts with one of a consulting firm’s Senior System Architects architecting systems using a client’s organization chart(s) and Income Statement(s) to be developed and used as planned by a client’s Architecture Team, are evaluated by initial member(s) of the next client’s Architecture Team reading the firm’s proposal published on the Internet and then collaborating with one of Enzweiler’s Senior System Architects to complete an Initial Investigation in less than an hour and before consulting fees are incurred.
