Programme and Project Managers need to engage with the architecture community (Enterprise, Solution & Technical) during various stages of the project lifecycle. This engagement is often initiated with a vagueness of architectural capabilities assigned to the project.

This engagement, with the architecture community, will fluctuate and a healthier understanding of the type and capabilities of architects assigned would result in a mutually beneficial engagement for project managers and architects alike.

The presentation will draw attention to some of the basics i.e. the who, what, and when of architecture engagement in a programme or project.

The presentation will in essence, address a simple question “How do I, as a Project Manager, plan and derive the maximum value for my architecture project resources to ensure I use the right resource to deliver the appropriate products for my project.

We will start by describing the architecture community, the products and focus areas of the individual architects in the community then follow this by mapping the roles/responsibilities to the stages of a project life cycle (waterfall and agile) to meet delivery goals.

The presentation will finish with a segment to highlight some engagement experiences and an open conversation among participants.
