Suresh expanded on three aspects that Enterprise Architecture is often called on to deal with:
Innovation is an agent of change. Having the right innovation strategy which is aligned to the business strategy brings the required change in an agile manner. There are two broad strategies for innovation: playing to win; and playing not to lose. Suresh expanded on the significance of these two approaches in the context of Enterprise Architecture.

- Eliminate complexity that customers will not pay for
- Exploit the complexity that customers will pay for
- Minimize the costs of the complexity you offer
Suresh explained a complexity analysis process along these lines.
Finally, he expanded on the nature of Agility in the context of Enterprise Architecture.
