There is a massive movement of organisations moving to agile-at-scale (e.g. SAFe). Ironically, it can turn into an organisation becoming one big 'project', the opposite of what agile wants to achieve.
I am proposing a way to 'measure' the 'understanding' the top of an organisation has — how capable it is of making informed strategic decisions — on a subject, e.g. legal, finance, or what is my particular interest: IT.
Standardisation/rationalisation is a tool and a wish of many enterprise and it architects, focused as they are on simplification of the complex. But while superficially you can be very standardised, lifecycle events of all the parts can still turn the landscape into a 'hard problem'. Managing lifecycles is something organisations wrestle with because of the complexities. A model to manage lifecycles of items in your landscape — called Sunshine Lifecycle Management — is described.
