Frequently asked questions

Why did you split the Digital Architecture Workshop into two levels?


Last year, we witnessed growing acceptance of ICMG Digital Architecure driven transformations as well as project execution. Idea of architecture as a single variable model is helping users to manage complexity in a way never imagined before. The idea of project anatomy as a basis for creating new solutions, has opened up new possibilities. The tasks that would take days are being done in hours. Thanks to feedback from the participants and practitioners, we are happy to offer, very popular and effective Digital Architecture Workshop by splitting into two levels. One advantage you will get is that it's now 16 hours for Level 1 (Essential) Program and eight hours of Level 2 (Practitioner). So, you can split that across one year, you don't have to go through 24 hours spread across 15 days in one go. Yes, you got it correctly, one can attend at 16 hours, take a break, practise the ideas and again after five or six months, you can come back and sharpen the edge further. Earlier, our program was more like only "Chief Architect" please . But, now you can have your team members, middle level managers, professional with with 10 years to 15 years or senior Tech Engineers from 8 to 15 years can attend the Level 1 Essential Program, it will, it is valuable to them. Earlier, we had only one program, so it doesn't matter what is your background, how much you want to know, what you don't know, we were teaching everything in one single go.




I have not completetd Digital Architecture Workshop Level 1 Essential, can I attend Digital Architecture Workshop Level 2 Practitioner?


Sorry, Digital Architecture Workshop Level 1 Essential program is pre-requisite to attend Level 2 program. Some of the modules discussed in the Essential programs like
Module 1 : Enterprise & System Longevity Challenges & Opportunities
Module 2 : Enterprise Elements to Manage System Complexity
Module 3 : Digital Transformation with BPM, SOA, IoT, AI, RPA (One Project)
Module 4 : How to create models for Digital Transformation using a common IT Anatomy
The above skills are must before you can understand and apply the Anatomy models for Digital Transformation (Enterprise Wide) Opportunities & Challenges.




Can I attend the Digital Architecture Essential program now and then may be after one month, can I take up Digital Architecture Practitioner program


Yes, one can attend at 16 hours, take a break, practise the ideas and again after five or six months, you can come back and sharpen the skills further.

How is the feedback of this program?


Last year, we witnessed growing acceptance of ICMG Digital Architecure driven transformations as well as project execution. Idea of architecture as a single variable model is helping users to manage complexity in a way never imagined before. The idea of project anatomy as a basis for creating new solutions, has opened up new possibilities. The tasks that would take days are being done in hours Workshop Feedback “Course curriculum was well structured. I had an internal meeting and we agreed that we need to do something because the way in which we run our initiatives can be much better. Some of the tasks that take days could be done in a few hours using anatomy models. Taking the first step has started within our organisation. A key takeaway for me is that even if something is complex it doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be solved. There is tremendous knowledge that we got. Absolutely great. We didn’t know how these 12 days went. “
