Togaf ADM requires the creation of Target Architectures in several ADM phases. Togaf provides guidelines for creating such Target Architectures that are very,very useful for experienced Togaf
Architects. For less experienced Togaf Architects, Togaf is not very prescriptive in the creation, communication and visualisation of the Target Architectures and it says little about how to embed and
manage the business change in the Target Architectures. This paper describes our approach and examples of success stories about creation, communication and visualisation of Target Architectures and what does it mean in terms of business change
