The definitions of the concepts included in this framework, are designed to be compatible with existing views on enterprise architecture in general (IEEE 2000; Op ’t Land et al. 2008; Dietz 2008; TOGAF 2009), while also taking aboard insights from reported practical case studies on the use and formulation of principles (Davenport et al. 1989; Richardson et al. 1990; Lindström 2006a, 2006b; Op ’t Land and Proper 2007; Greefhorst et al. 2007; Greefhorst 2007). As such, the framework presented in this chapter also constitutes a first iteration in a design science (Hevner et al.

Before we properly define design principles, we first define the more general class of normative principles as: NORMATIVE PRINCIPLE A declarative statement that normatively prescribes a prop- erty of something. This is still quite a general definition. However, below we will see that this will actually allow us to also better relate design principles to concepts such as business principles and IT principles. We clearly do not consider scientific principles to be forms of normative principles, and design principles in particular.

For instance, he observed how certain principles of the human body, such as symmetry and proportion, ensure ‘perfection’. The human body was a great source of inspiration to him. He even believed that the principles of the human body should also be applied in the design of gardens and buildings because it would always lead to a perfect result: an ultimate combination of beauty, robustness and usability. When using principles in the sense of beginning, they generally provide insight into the causes of certain effects.
