First thoughts

I was looking through traditional architects relationship to other team members (structural engineers, construction, plumbers, electricians, etc). This has always been a passion of mine as a student of professions but this time I was looking at the content of their work instead of role integration (I will have another post on that soon enough). What emerged from this has been in the back of my head for a long time in a very ambiguous sort of way.

It is very clear that the purpose of architects is fundamentally different than those of developers, engineers, project managers, etc and that projects, programs etc that have skilled architects are significantly more successful in terms of outcomes to the business (Value of Architecture). When I speak of outcomes, I am less interested in traditional measures of success such as project schedule, budget and requirements and more outcomes to new revenue, new customers, customer satisfaction, and other business value management outcomes. However, it wasn’t until I was presented with the agile motto, ’emergent architecture’, that I realized the true difference between what Iasa means when it uses the term architect, and the meaning of many others when they use the term.
