Practice Building

Written by
(0 votes)

 Successful architectural practices are founded on:

  • The willingness of key stakeholders (e.g. senior management) to support and fund the architectural practice;
  • A broader acceptance in the stakeholder community that the architectural approach is valid, and a willingness to engage with the architecture function operationally;
  • The existence of a well-trained workforce to fill the architectural roles;
  • A formal framework within which architecture will be built and maintained. This will ensure that:
    1. Architectural practices are applied consistently;
    2. Architectural knowledge is gathered, managed, controlled and re-used effectively;
    3. Results of the architectural approach can be observed, and therefore measured.

 In many organisations, the nascent architecture practice is faced with a situation where initial management support has led to the budget being found for permanent staffing, and some form of formal training (often in TOGAF methodology). Thereafter, the situation is often characterised by them being left to ‘just get on with it’.

However, creating a functioning professional practice relies on more that just having a group of well-trained, intelligent staff. Important domains of expertise, such as Enterprise Architecture, Project Control and Service Management should be underpinned by a framework providing support and structure for the work done by subject area experts.

To function effectively, each domain requires an Operating Model, Knowledge and Process Management coupled with appropriate interfaces defining the way they work with other parts of the organisation.

At Doriq, we have developed and implemented such practices for large organizations, and have built a consistent and reliable approach to brining professional practices to maturity.
