BPTrends
Much of the world is currently concerned with the largest outbreak of the Ebola virus in history.

Business architecture: Critical thinking in business architecture
BPTrends
Like any other analysis and design activity, architects are often in the role of soliciting requirements from a range of sources and stakeholders. As we have all experienced, this exercise is met with a wide range of opinions and perspectives from stakeholders who think they know what is required, and with a wide range of confusion and vagueness from those who don't know what they want.

Then, the architect has to be able to examine the different opinions, evaluate them in the context of different perspectives, and balance and prioritize them. The field of study called Critical Thinking is aimed at just these problems.
