The Way of The Architect

A guide for the enterprise architect in a digital world

About the Book

Traditionally, architects decide on the architecture and conformance of solutions to enterprise architecture. Programs and projects often start with a comprehensive architecture document. Still, managers and leads rarely perform a transparent evaluation of the project portfolio to ascertain the customer value. This dynamic has shifted in the digital era. Most organizations now apply agile, and design thinking approaches in translating user requirements into working solutions.

The focus in autonomous teams is often on the frequent delivery of working software to enable the business to adapt quickly to its environment. Although this aligns with the principles of Agile, it could also create architectural deficiencies and increased technical debt. This book presents the challenges of enterprise architects in an agile and fast-paced business environment, showing the architect’s role as an open-minded visionary yet practical enabler for their organizations. I also provide practical approaches that you can apply immediately to your agile environment.
