Abstract: Many companies face misalignment between strategic and tactical level and between business and IT. Therefore these companies need to change and Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) is a discipline to guide this change, however clear guidelines are missing. To create guidelines to improve the alignment the following research questions (RQ) are answered. RQ1: Which EAM guidelines need to be developed to manage business and IT alignment and the alignment of strategic and tactical level, based on theoretical research? RQ2: What is the value of the guidelines and how can they be improved according to the business sections; business management on strategic level, business management on tactical level, IT management on strategic level and IT management on tactical level? RQ3: Which EAM guidelines will form the first set of EAM guidelines to manage the alignment between business and IT and between strategic and tactical level, based on the empirical validation? Via a literature study research question one was answered and a single embedded case was used to answer research question two and three. The end result of this study is a set of 72 valuable EAM guidelines to manage the alignment between strategic and tactical level and between business and IT.
