Why do I need an Architect? | Collaborative Blog

Why do I need an Architect? | Collaborative Blog | The Enterprise Architecture Daily | Scoop.it

This is a question that seems to come and go over time, like the ebb and flow of the tides. Everything is cyclical, and lately the cycle seems to be rising again.

 

How many times have you heard or been asked this question?  How would you answer it? What follows is not meant to be the over arching answer, just some food for thought based on a conversation with a client and my own (admittedly) biased viewpoints.

Enterprise Architecture is the discipline not just for Enterprise Architects, it's the thinking process every business leader should master; and it's the discipline every mature organization needs to practice.  


Not everyone should be an EA, neither everyone wants to be an EA,  but everyone can learn how to think like architect through: systematic thinking, system thinkingholistic thinking, critical thinking, creative thinking, analytics thinking, synthetic thinking, non-linear thinking, abstract thinkingwhole-brain thinking, positive thinking, etc...

All Effective Enterprise Architects Are Agile - Inside Architecture - Site Home - MSDN Blogs

All Effective Enterprise Architects Are Agile - Inside Architecture - Site Home - MSDN Blogs | The Enterprise Architecture Daily | Scoop.it

I explained to one of my clients recently that there is a perception of animosity between the Enterprise Architecture community and the Agile community.  Both sides make assumptions about the other, often assumptions that are simply unfair.  For example, many in the EA community think of “agile practices” as an opportunity to develop software without any architecture at all, while many in the agile software development community think of architecture as one of the “big design up front” guys who oppose their principles and practices.  Of course, it is not difficult to find people who fit those unfair descriptions, but I’d like to point out how these two viewpoints are similar.

I believe that effective Enterprise Architecture must be approached from an agile standpoint.
