First of all, I would like to thank Dr. Leon Kappelman for his outstanding support
as the chair of this dissertation. I appreciate the unique opportunity he offered me in
getting involved with enterprise architecture and the SIMEAWG. I owe the successful
completion of my PhD program to him and I consider myself most fortunate to be able to
work with him and have his significant contributions on my dissertation and academic
experience while at the University of North Texas. Additionally, I would like to thank Dr.
Robert Pavur, Dr. Anna Sidorova, and Dr. Steve Swartz for their effort and assistance
as dissertation committee members. They all provided important guidance not only for
this dissertation, but also for other research projects and advice for my academic
endeavors, both while in the United States Air Force and for my post-USAF career.
Thank you for taking the time for this and for your contributions. I am also thankful for
the advice and support of Dr. John Windsor, Dr. Sherry Ryan, and Dr. Victor Prybutok
who served as ITDS academic advisors during my "tour" at UNT. My experience has
been very rewarding and successful due to their advice.
I also want to express gratitude to my parents, Lee and Karen for their guidance
and support for me and my family before and during this PhD program. Finally, I would
like to thank my wife, Kristin for her support and love in our marriage that enabled the
successful completion of this PhD program. Thank you for all that you do and my
academic accomplishments are as much hers as they are mine. I am glad our son
Jackson has such a great role model, and hopefully, should he choose to pursue a PhD,
will have the same amazing opportunities, individuals, and support in his academic
experience as I have had.
Here’s what’s next.
