Ed: I agree with you that a blended approach is typically the right model for most organizations to get started with SOA. Let me clarify: We don't recommend an autocratic, centrally managed, tightly governed, "BIG" SOA initiative. Too much central management and control typically results in analysis paralysis and the ivory tower syndrome. When we talk about strengthening the organization's pillars (governance, management, leadership, skills, and practices), we aren't recommending central command and control. Strong organizational pillars enables more delegation of responsibility. It relies on good communication to ensure that people understand governance policies and guidelines so that you can trust them to make good decisions.
