Presentation: "Questions for an Enterprise Architect"

Track: So you think you're an architect / Time: Wednesday 11:30 - 12:20 / Location: Store Sal, Musikhuset

Following the success of agile and lean principles for individual projects we are now seeing interest in applying the same principles across the entire enterprise. This brings agile and lean thinking to architecture groups, and raises questions around enterprise architecture and governance. 

In this session Erik introduces the concept of evolutionary architecture and then discusses questions such as: How can an architecture strategy be executed in a lean context? What about conformance? And: where do the architects sit in a lean enterprise? 

Erik Doernenburg, a coding architect for many years, will lead the discussion and share his thoughts and observations from a variety of projects and organisations.
