About the Book

Creating a career in enterprise-architecture

This anthology from the Tetradian weblog provides overviews and commentary on how to develop a career in enterprise-architecture, business-architecture and related fields, and on the various roles that apply in those fields. It is intended to be a useful introduction for newcomers to enterprise-architecture.

This book includes about 30 posts and 30 images from the weblog. These posts are split into two main groups:

  • Architecture as Career - offers practical guidance for anyone interested in developing a career in enterprise-architecture or any of the related disciplines.
  • Architecture Roles - describes the different roles across the overall architecture domains, what they each do, and how they link together across the whole to support effective change.
