Our Team

Dr. Randy Frid

Principal Scientist

As Chief Enterprise Architect, Dr. Frid brings to the team a rich background of Canadian law, business management, technology engineering and physics.

Dr. Frid is also co-author of the Frid Framework, a living, multi-volume opus that established him long ago as a pioneer and founding father of Knowledge Management and a pioneer in Enterprise Architecture.

Dr. Frid is responsible for developing an architected approach to organizational governance and strategy, which provides architectural capabilities over-and-above current architecture frameworks such as UAF, DNDAF, TOGAF, DoDAF and MODAF by adding a level of rigour and models specifically targeting senior decision-makers. This capability provides senior decision-makers with simple, easily understood Enterprise Architecture models they can actually use to help guide and shape organizational architecture without getting bogged down in the nasty details of traditional architecture.

Most seniors avoid EA because of its overly dry and complex nature. Seniors don't have time to waste delving into complicated blueprints. That problem is for middle management. The Frid Framework helps summarize and abstract the relevant key messages from within the architecture, while also enabling the development of high-level models that seniors need to communicate top-down drivers, risks, ARAs, and establish strategic direction to shape the organizational architecture, mission or business scenarios, outcomes and objectives.

Colt Frid has been developing Enterprise Architectures and contributing to the Frid Framework for more than a decade. Colt is certified in TOGAF 9.1 as well as DNDAF, DoDAF, MODAF, UAF and UPDM. He has been working side-by-side with his father on major Government of Canada projects (currently for CANSOFCOM on C4ISR architecture).

Colt majored in Law at Carleton University, and is a co-author of the Frid Framework, a series of doctrinal books focused on Strategy, Governance, Outcomes Management and Capability Based Planning that extend the existing canon of Enterprise Architecture targeting senior decision-makers.
