13:00-14:00 Guest presentation 1 Mikkel Bram, Head Architect of Personal Banking at Nordea

speaker bio:

Mikkel works for Nordea, the largest bank in the Nordic region. Here Mikkel is accountable for Enterprise Architecture for Personal Banking. Mikkel has a background of 30+ years of practical experience with technology enabled business transformations. In 2016 he earned the title of Doctor of Management at the University of Hertfordshire on the basis of PhD research into the differences between theory and  practice in the Enterprise Architecture field. This research changed Mikkel’s perspective on how important politicking, power plays, and people skills are for Enterprise Architecture – in addition to more classical engineering skills.


With an outset in a brief theoretical context setting, Mikkel will share some practices of how he seeks to steer and govern Nordea’s transformation using Enterprise Architecture. Mikkel will cover both political and technical aspects of how he seeks to produce ‘signature-ready’ EA artefact and how he conducts architectural governance. In his summary Mikkel will position his practice against different theoretical standpoints and perspectives.

Guest presentations and workshops

Workshop  09:15-1200

Annika Klyver partner at IRM Sweden and Milan Guenther partner at Enterprise Design Associates


EA teams are challenged to drive innovation and initiate profound changes in the enterprise. Beyond mere innovation theatre or superficial improvements, this requires us to bring in deep knowledge of the enterprise/business architecture. The Enterprise Design Sprint workshop connects customer-centric product and service development to the enterprise transformation required to deliver, using a Milky Way Enterprise Capability Map throughout the process. This format is based on a workshop originally developed by Google Ventures to boost investment performance across their startup portfolio. Working with many public, corporate and scale-up clients, this tool has been made enterprise-ready: this combined map and workshop technique will help EA leaders take the next step to create faster innovation and change.


  • The design perspective and why digital innovation and operational transformations fall short of their expectations
  • Planning and running Enterprise Design Sprints for business impact
  • Using The Milky Way mapping technique to build on your strengths and ensure Innovation Fit with your existing Enterprise and Business Architecture
  • Translating mappings and models from stakeholder views to architecture and identifying need for transformation
  • Cases and stories from doing Enterprise Design in practice


Annika Klyver
Annika is a partner at IRM Sweden. She has long experience from facilitating workshops on change and practical architecture work in the public and private sector, as well as from teaching and developing methods such as The Milky Way modelling technique. She uses approaches from lean, agile, system design, and capability modelling methods.
She has been developing the field of Business Architecture since 2009 by exploring and learning from design, customer-centric, and product development domains. Annika is one of the head teachers in the leading Certified Business Architecture for professionals in Sweden.

Milan Guenther
Milan is a partner at Enterprise Design Associates, a global curated network of practitioners, where he works with organizations of all shapes and sizes on innovation and transformation. He wrote Intersection, a book introducing the Enterprise Design Approach for systemic and holistic design in complex enterprises.
Milan is one of the organisers behind the Intersection Conference series, and worked extensively with Design Sprints to achieve significant impact with limited time and resources. He was amongst the first Google certified Design Sprint Masters. He is teaching Enterprise Design as part of a Master's Program in Digital Innovation and Transformation at SciencesPo Paris.


13:00-14:00 Guest presentation 1 Tarek Kaddoumi, Enterprise Data Lead, Middle East at PwC


Rethinking data position in EA practices

Data analytics and management role is getting more critical in our businesses day by day; a lot of business and operating models have changed and reacted dramatically to adopt the new position and role of data, however a lot of questions, areas of negotiations, or areas of concerns can be discussed/addressed on how EA and EA management reacted to adopt and adapt to the new role of data.

In this session Tarek is going to raise some questions on this topic, and he is going to discuss the position of data within EA practices and frameworks, how EA can support data, and how EA can empower the data business role.

Tarek Kaddoumi, Enterprise Data and Analytics Lead, Middle East at PwC

Tarek is a dataholic, agilist, and enterprise architect, with a deep focus on converting data into value. Tarek enjoys promoting, researching, publishing and speaking about the valuable alignment between data, architecture, and agility; has helped too many businesses (from big four to startups) in establishing their data analytics, architecture, and management capabilities, and “agiling” their architecture management.

Tarek has some academic publications on enterprise architecture, the application of agile methodologies on enterprise architecture, and business driven IT.  

14:00-15:00 Guest presentation 2 Rasmus Stenholm, Enterprise Architect at Vestas


How-to revive & scale the Enterprise Architecture discipline from within IT

When the build-up of the EA discipline has been left with scattered results several times before, who has the courage to try that again?

A conceptual look into the process and key deliverables.

Among other things a look at stakeholder management, governance, goals/challenges, capability maturity assessments and risk mgmt. in order to design EA themes and operationalize the work around EA. First of in order to build an architecture body of knowledge, lift the architecture practice and enable more strategic planning.

15:00-16:00 Guest presentation 3 John Gøtze, Editor-in-Chief, Senior Advisor at QualiWare


Digital First, Digital to the Core, Smart XYZ, … how do enterprises cope with “the digital”, and how do enterprise architects respond to this? What are the essential elements of a digital first enterprise architecture? The real digital advantage comes from having an organization designed to adapt with dexterity along with rapidly advancing digital technologies. Successful enterprises manage to both explore and exploit “the digital”; they become ambidextrous. In what we call Organizational Architecture & Design, we use the Extended Enterprise Architecture Cube (EA6)  to understand and enable ambidextrous organizational practices in the digital enterprise. Whether for exploitation of the established architecture, or for exploration of new innovations, or for both, most enterprises need to improve their digital dexterity, and our claim is that an enterprise must use one coherent approach in order to become ambidextrous.

Not afraid to get his hands dirty, he is also directing strategic infrastructure transformation and re-envisioning the workplace to create more opportunities for Page’s people to reach their potential.


14:00-15:00 Guest presentation 2 Peter Gaarde, Adviser at Kooperado

What´s your complexity?

Choosing the right analytical methods when analysing and documenting information, processes and technology is paramount in setting a project up for succes. Every project has its own kind of complexity, and the talk will focus on how to choose the right methods for the problem at hand. It will also touch on how the project level analysis and methods relate to enterprise level artifacts.



Peter Gaarde is an experienced architect and advisor, having worked in all types of archicture for more than 15 years. Peter has worked as a consultant on many complex projects, where the relationship between project-level architecture and enterprise architecture has been a challenge (to put it mildly).
