Abstract:The Enterprise Architecture practice enables and steers change in organizations. In that role it has been widely accepted, thanks to benefits like rationalizing IT expenditure. By driving change, in an ever-changing disruptive reality we live in now, they’ve been pressed to drive change faster. The practice depends on descriptions of how organizations function, or could function. However, organizations in many cases are similar to other organizations. And, barring innovative changes, the transformations that the practice steers have a source, either research, consultancy, or other organizations. As such, using patterns would help the practice. Patterns in this context are reusable solutions to repeatable problems. Which could be leveraged when describing structures and behaviors of organizations that have already been thought of. As well as sharing how organizations could change when there is a common objective. The result of this study is a methodology for the specification of Enterprise Architecture using patterns for sustainability. This methodology is developed using the Architecture Development Model at its’ core. As a requirement for developing a methodology there are two middle results as well. First, the compilation of a set of patterns from literature. Second, a compilation of characteristics of sustainability from literature.
