Intuitively it would seem that the Enterprise Architecture (EA) and Continuous Process Improvement (CPI) efforts would be complementary; both communities are interested in process documentation, process standardization and operational improvement.To date, this seemingly obvious synergy has yet to be realized. The most obvious area of commonality between these two lines of effort is the use of maps, models and simulations. This paper provides a framework for a continuation in CPI/EA integration thinking based on that common ground. As additional integration occurs, other areas of common interest and/or commonality will no doubt be identified.
