Abstract
Contemporary organizations are operating in increasingly volatile environments and must be able to respond quickly to changes in their environment. Enterprise Engineering aims to design agile organizations by applying theories from other elds. A theory from system sciences that receives much attention in this regard is modularity. In this paper, we apply a traditional modularity approach to a real-life case study. The subject of this case study is an enterprise architecture project in an e-government context. Our analysis shows that modularity can provide a relevant perspective in such projects. Moreover, it provides insights concerning the usage of enterprise architecture frameworks. However, due to the dierent nature of organizations, additional research is required to precisely understand the application of organizational modularity.
