Lack of effective involvement of stakeholders is one of the common drawbacks of enterprise architecture development . This paper, therefore, focuses on challenges associated with involving stakeholders in the enterprise architecture effort. These challenges are mainly caused by two issues, i.e.: (a) the success of collaborative sessions that involve enterprise architects and stakeholders mainly depends on the presence of a professional or skilled facilitator; (b) the lack of a clear, predictable, and repeatable way of managing tasks that require effective and active stakeholder involvement. Earlier attempts to overcome these issues involve using Collaboration Engineering to develop a process that enterprise architects can execute (by themselves) so as to manage tasks that require effective collaboration with stakeholders during enterprise architecture creation. Collaboration Engineering was chosen because it offers affordable facilitation to practitioners (in this case enterprise architects) of recurring high-value tasks (like enterprise architecture creation), by enabling the development of repeatable processes tha
