A Week in the Life of an Architect
May-June 2012 (vol. 29 no. 3)
pp. 94-96
Frank Buschmann, Siemens Corporate Technology
Leadership is the key for architects to balance all their activities and duties with the interests of different stakeholders without losing control of the architecture under development. They must have a clear vision and strict focus on key aspects of success. All their activities should be goal-driven and in direct cooperation and interaction with the relevant stakeholder groups.
