Introduction to DoDAF Training

Introduction to DoDAF Training:

Introduction to DoDAF Training Course with Hands-On Exercises (Online, Onsite, and Classroom Live)

Introduction to DoDAF Training course provides comprehensive information about the concepts, background, principles, and techniques of DoDAF. Introduction to DoDAF training will discuss the viewpoints, models, and DM2. Introduction to DoDAF training course covers:

  • Basics of DoDAF and Architecture Frameworks
  • DoDAF 1.5
  • DoDAF 2.02

Introduction to DoDAF training course will teach you about architecting processes, methods, and thought patterns at a practical level. This hands-on training also will provide you an overview of the models of DoDAF 2. Introduction to DoDAF training will help you understand and apply the DoDAF 2 models, review the principles of architecting and then use them to develop a DoDAF model compliant. In addition, you will learn about the “Fit for Purpose” models and how they can be incorporated into the DoDAF models.

Introduction to DoDAF training is designed with a lecture-practice approach. It will be delivered in the form of an interactive workshop, the most majority of which is dedicated to hands-on activities, exercising with real-life examples, and eventually developing a DoDAF model in class.
