Enterprise Design Patterns Book

You are working very hard, but does it really make a difference?

Enterprise design Patterns


Capturing a wealth of experience from many sources, four world-class enterprise designers and architects present a collection of 35 immediately applicable solutions to successful enterprise design.

These patterns are the result of story-telling sessions with many practitioners from a wide range of fields and disciplines and provide practical guidance on:

  • How to deal with commonly occurring obstacles in the enterprise design practice;
  • Deliverables that people love to co-create;
  • Building the strong relationships you need for a collaborative design process;
  • Applying evidence-based design practices;

With this book we lay the foundations for the practice of designing enterprises to improve their Identity, Experience and Architecture.

This book is for
  • Enterprise Architects experiencing that their great ideas have a very limited impact on business decisions
  • Service or UX designers tired of creating concepts that are never implemented the way envisioned
  • Business Analysts wanting to work on the big picture instead of point solutions


"I’ve been fascinated by the authors’ idea of providing practical solutions to those issues that keep enterprise designers from achieving more impact. I am excited to see this book become an important stepping stone in their endeavor and hope you will enjoy reading it."

Martin Mocker,
Professor at ESB Business School, Reutlingen University, research affiliate at the MIT Center for Information Systems Research

"The patterns are presented in a way that a reader can ponder them and wonder what actions would make sense in their context. It’s a timely and welcome resource for practitioners in the field."

Naomi Stanford,
Author of Economist Bestseller "Organization Design"

"I find the patterns described in this book to be insightful and practical, and although I have been doing this sort of work for years I have still found many nuggets of wisdom in its pages. I suspect you will too."

Scott Ambler,
Chief Scientist of Disciplined Agile at Project Management Institute and and Core Team Member of the Architectural Thinking Association.
