Behaviour art or just stunt?
Architecture trumps technology, not the other way around.
• Gain the respect from the developers actually implementing solutions. You should be able to jump in and get your hands dirty. Also you need to have a good working relationship with system or business analysts.
• Prove yourself on successful projects. Word travels fast when your design is good.
• Develop diplomacy skills. Lots of managers feel that architectural decisions from somebody else make them look technically weak. You need to find a way to sell the best idea, and cut through red-tape.
• Think big picture, think strategically, think abstractly. The challenge of a good architect is to be tactically and strategically proficient. Developers and managers often fall to either side.
• Read, read, read.
Agile Project Management involves quite a bit of planning, but with a different emphasis.
"Sometimes people misunderstand the difference between formality and discipline, very disciplined in approach to planning, but very informal."
