Given a blank sheet of paper how would you go about driving business value from an Enterprise Architecture roadmap?

There are various models around that discuss how IT / Architecture should create a roadmap to support the business. Seems that none of these actually talk (apart from in brief) about how a business stakeholder will realise tangible benefits from an EA strategy. There is lots of discussion around consolidation / simplification etc.. but no one can answer the question "yeah I get all that but what does all that mean to ME?" - interested in all views.

The second part of the presentation -- see URL below -- shows how EA (with the use of BPM and SOA as main tools for enterprise performance improvement) can address concerns of different stakeholders (from top managers to users and IT operators).
