The free excerpt is the first part of the fourth edition to be released and it is compatible with ArchiMate 3.1. As before, it contains a full step-by-step introduction to the language. You really do not need anything else to get started. (Well, a tool. Modelling with pen and paper is a bit unwieldy, but I’ve seen it done).
I encourage you to inform me of any error you see. There will be some, there is juist too much there not to make errors.
Please go to the home page of the new edition of Mastering ArchiMate for details and a link to the free purchase.
Note: see here for the upgrade policy of the full PDF. If and when it is released, it will be a free upgrade for anyone who bought Edition III.TC1 (based on ArchiMate 3.0.1) on or after Nov 5, 2019. Be patient, I have to do a bit of work before I can do that.
