Role of Senior Architects

A key strategy is delegation. This works well if you are comfortable with it.

I espouse a personal philosophy that says if a decision can reasonably be made by someone with a more narrow scope of responsibility, defer the decision to that person or group.

Trust, but verify. Review. Review. Review. Ask open ended questions and have an open channel of communicating early ‘red flags’.

And then hold the group accountable to see through the results of the decision into a tangible deliverable.
