Previous events

Workshop participants of LMSA’09 reversed the emphasis. Primary attention was paid to organizational considerations with some attention being paid to the skills necessary to be an architect. The skills addressed, however, were not technical skills but were leadership and communication skills. Discussions were on how to communicate to and convince management of the importance of architectural decisions, roles, responsibilities, and relationships within an organization that involve the architect, and agile methods and architecture.
