Enterprise Engineering is an expertise, in the intersection of systems science, information science, and organization theory; which is concerned with “the body of knowledge, principles, and disciplines related to the analysis, design, implementation, and operation of all elements associated with an enterprise.”
Enterprise engineering is taught through the DEMO Methodology, the next generation methodology for modeling enterprises. DEMO is an acronym for Design and Engineering Methodology for Organizations.
The DEMO philosophy is that people are the ‘pearls’ of every organization. Bestowed with authority and corresponding responsibility, people in an organization deliver services to each other and the environment, in social interaction. Thus, placing an enterprise in the category of social systems.
