This paper presents the findings from a recent pilot study exploring how project compliance with enterprise architecture (EA) can be measured. This is a research area which has received very little attention in academic publications on EA. While some ways of measuring EA exist within the literature, these measures are mainly found using a top-down approach deriving measures from theory rather than a bottom-up approach using empirical and practical studies as an outset. The aim of the pilot study was to explore relevant measures from the practical view of architects and project managers in a case organization and whether measures identified through existing theory seemed useful to the practitioners.
