Community Building communities and collaboration is key to the role of an EA Architecting Solutions is a collaborative effort Scenarios Include: Architecture Development – Coordination with project teams and domain architects. Architecture Reviews – Aid for ARB’s and project teams Creation of organizational governance – Principles, Policies, Standards and design patterns. Information sharing Rewards Program (e.g., List of Top Architects) “… 85% of a the typical S&P 500 company’s market value is the result of intangible assets. These intangible assets is the result of it’s people, it’s human capital… It’s no longer what you own that counts but what you know …” Craig Symons, Forrester Research
