Within an enterprise or organization, Architects are trusted advisors for their technological wisdom and systems-thinking prowess. What if the role was one of collaboration, where Architecture had a seat at the product and business table?
With today’s rapidly changing environments, regulations, and market demands, customer-focused architects are needed more than ever. The technology processes and ways of working from past years may no longer be enough to keep pace and more is needed. More collaboration with customers. More collaboration as part of a leadership team. More scale. More profit. More sustainability and resilience.
The role of the Architect is evolving, and one of the first steps to take is to choose a framework that will enable customer-centric technological designs and development that remains flexible enough to accommodate rapidly changing demands yet robust enough to earn the trust of the business and customer.
Whether you are looking at the role of a System Architect or Engineer, serving as a Solution Architect, or an Enterprise Architect, or working as part of the Lean Portfolio Management collaborations, Applied Frameworks and SAFe® for Architects provide the tools and guidance to keep pace.
The Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) enables collaboration between the product management team and architecture through shared learning experiences, a common lexicon, and setting the environment for tough conversations around trade-offs.
