Change management is an expansive topic (hardly surprising given its importance), and, as such, there are different types of change that require different change strategies to lead them effectively.

Enterprise architects are highly qualified individuals with in-depth knowledge of several topics. They conceptualize and clarify ideas, advising teams, departments, executives, and senior stakeholders in a way that corresponds with each group’s unique concerns, priorities, and level of knowledge.
