Next, Gartner will start telling the story to stakeholders about where the enterprise is heading and what business drivers it is responding to. This will be a plain story without any prescribed documentation standards, acronyms, or techno-jargon. The only goal is to ensure that the stakeholders understand—and share—a common vision. The Gartner philosophy is as follows: If an organization has a single shared vision for the future and all stakeholders are behind that vision, the organization is already fully equipped to consider the ramifications of the vision into the business, technical, information, and solutions architectures for the enterprise.
