    Question: (about 275 words)
    The "EA as Strategy" (see attached resource part 1 and 2) describes four stages of architecture maturity that should guide the evolution of EA in an organization toward the "optimized core" phase and beyond.
    Most of this journey involves a gradual reduction in local flexibility regarding decisions related to business processes (and local control over applications/data). However, advancing beyond a certain point of standardization can actually allow local organizations to regain a higher degree of flexibility and application customization capability while still making use of a common, optimized company core.
    Explain how this is possible, and describe what architecture factors are most important in reaching a point where greater business modularity could be permitted and which could even be seen as leading to more strategic value.
    As the CEO of the company, explain why you would, or would not, want to achieve the business modularity level of maturity.
