In this session, we’ll look at some practices that help to perform architectural work that’s actually useful, as opposed to the kind of work that’s perceived by everyone (except the architect) as a waste of time and effort. We’ll address why it’s necessary to consider architectural aspects, why it’s so easy to draw the wrong conclusions and make everyone’s lives miserable, and how we can prevent this from happening. Topics addressed include the right amount of upfront thinking, the merits of boring technology, managing technical challenges, creating malleable structures, and integrating humans and organization into architectural work.
