Today, large enterprises develop a significant body of commercially available software. As a result, the key stakeholders include those who are often responsible for a significant enterprise level concern and those who are not typically involved in software engineering discussions. Current software development approaches ignore or poorly manage these enterprise level concerns. This hampers the ability to create connections among the stakeholders responsible for enterprise wide issues, the development team, and the artifacts with which they are concerned. In this paper we identify a set of propositions for coordination in enterprise software engineering environments and describe a preliminary framework to support such interactions.
