Business and ICT strategic alignment remains an ongoing challenge facing organizations as they react to changing requirements by adapting or introducing new technologies to existing infrastructure. Enterprise Architecture (EA) has increasingly become relevant to these demands and as a consequence numerous methods and frameworks for pursuing EA have emerged. However these approaches remain bloated, time-consuming and lacking in precision. This paper proposes a lightweight method for EA (LEAP) and introduces a language for representing EA components that lends itself to modelling as-is and to-be EA with a concrete aim to providing a simulation environment that delivers an unambiguous description of the required changes. The LEAP method and the language are illustrated with a detailed case study of business change currently being addressed by UK higher education institutions.
