See the reference implementation of the Lean Enterprise Architecture Framework (LEAF), that is created with Sparx EA -tool.
The Sparx EA model is published as HTML, and can be accessed via this:
The LEAF can be used for linking enterprise architecture to solution architecture. High-level enterprise architecture diagrams can be modelled with ArchiMate, from which modellers (and other stakeholders) can drill-down to more detailed diagrams that can be modelled with BPMN or UML.
The level-1 (the navigation landing page, the “front page”) of the LEAF is shown in the diagram below (figure 1).
The level-2 the LEAF is shown in the diagram below (figure 2).
The level-2 of the LEAF is opened from the content placeholders located on the Architecture Landscape part, as illustrated in the figure 3 below.
The LEAF supports ArchDevOps, in which demand- and requirements management are supported by architecture in the Design -phase. Development and Operations -phases are aligned with DevOps -approach.
LEAF phases are aligned with ArchDevOps:
- Design = Arch (demand- and requirement management supported by architecture, that is integrated with service design, security etc.)
- Development = Dev
- Operations = Ops
This LEAF -framework is continuously updated, to be better suited for to be used a generic framework combining design thinking, enterprise architecture approaches, and methods like Goal-Driven Approach (GDA), Service-Driven Approach (SDA) etc. More information about the LEAF can be found from here: link.

- ArchiMate Cookbook, link introduces patterns and examples of what you can do with ArchiMate, how you can use ArchiMate
- ArchiMate Examples, link, introduces many practical modelling examples.
