Role of Architect in Agile – Webinar

The role of “Architect” is sometimes frowned upon in the Agile community; this role is often perceived as a central command-and-control authority who performs large up-front design, generates excessive documentation and bottlenecks decisions. We struggled with the question: is there truly a place for an Architect in an Agile organization? This webinar chronicles one organization’s trial-and-error approach in discovering how to achieve technical alignment across multiple teams while preserving team empowerment.
