Tying the specific to the general is particularly helpful. Case studies are also useful, to make concrete the specifics of the engagement. [AI] (Colleen) will send a link to the Case Western architecture diagram to the list. Feedback on the call was that the UW-Madison method of breaking down the architecture framework in this way is useful. Jim noted a useful categorization of 3 main types of projects - operational, strategic, and political. ********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at
