Designing Business and IT in agile alignment has become an increasingly pressing matter for organisations. This is mostly because of the critical importance IT has in an organisation. According to [5], a good Business-IT alignment can help an organisation to keep up with their competition in a turbulent environment and can be achieved by developing enterprise architecture. The solution proposed by this paper deals with this issue by linking strategy models to each other and to implementation. This can ensure that no vital aspects of the strategic planning process are overlooked and that a smoother transition to organisational change is ensured. Also due to the links created between strategy and its implementation through enterprise architecture it becomes easier to determine how certain strategic choices can impact the architecture of an organisation, and also how certain projects would help an organisation achieve its goals.
