Does Agile Need Architects?
Presented by: ICC (Sponsor)Time: Thursday, Jan. 10, 2:15 PM - 3:00 PM
[Presented by Kevin Fox, Director of Enterprise Architecture, ICC] In an environment where innovation and entrepreneurship are key objectives and Just In Time Design and Minimum Viable Product are commonly-accepted practices, is the role of architect still meaningful? If so, what can architects do to promote, rather than impede, Lean and Agile practices within an organization? And above all, how can architects help an organization to keep up with the bewildering pace of technology change. Kevin Fox, ICC's Director of Enterprise Architecture, has developed an “Agile Architect Manifesto” that reflects his real-world experience supporting Agile development teams and organizational technology adoption. In this session, he uses the manifesto to examine the characteristics of meaningful architecture in the context of Agile transformation.Room: RosewoodLevel: Introductory and overview
