Enterprise Architecture as a discipline promotes a framework of theories useful for planning the enterprise behavior. It might take years for verifying a theory; but in lack of it, manifold years will be needed to salvage the wrong done. In lack of theories the planning will be along a straight line, completely missing what mind should have uncovered and rather relying on what meets the eye. Furthermore, while acknowledging that planning is not moving along a straight line, it also must factor that random action exists that gives rise to unpredictability. This means detecting actions that leads into fragments and anticipating consequence due to them is very important both in structure and in behavior.
Most important among all other theories in the realm of EA is ‘Theory of Constraints’. Per ‘Programmed Cell Death’ A Constraint provides information about the current state and why it evolved into its present state from the past. Also, it provides inference into the possible future state. TOC also ties into system dynamics that can be explained by entropy. All these together has a consequence in terms of the behavior, especially with the probabilistic determinism at macroscopic level and indeterminism at microscopic level. The all encompassing behavior of the enterprise as an instrument with no beginning and end is explained by ‘implicate order’, which also accounts for generative transformations by unfoldments the DNA of which exists enfolded. All encompassing means an inclusive and a pluralistic architectural framework.
