How to accomplish effective architecture work in agile teams and projects

Architectures are increasingly developed in autonomous teams, and the technical, conceptual responsibility is more widely spread in modern organizations. Architectural concepts must dynamically adjust to the situations, and technological change should take place continuously and incrementally – in other words evolutionarily. New skills are therefore demanded of developers and architects encompassing not only technical but also methodological and communicative aspects.

Our Customers Say

»This is one of the best seminars I have ever attended! It was not a dull express preparation for an exam, but really focused on knowledge transfer and practical application through (role) games and group work. This is exactly the kind of seminar I would like to have more of (for myself and my colleagues).«

Architecture and Agility with Stefan Toth - Software Architecture in the Stream

Architecture is stable, software development is agile - there are constantly new requirements and new sprints with new plans. How do these two worlds fit together? In this episode Stefan Toth discusses these and other questions about agility and architecture - from team to company level. Youtube

Agile Architektur (Architektur-Spicker Nr. 6)

Softwarearchitektur wird in agilen Kontexten dynamischer, kleinteiliger, verteilter. Agile Denkweise bringt Cross-Funkionalität, Iterativität und Flexibiltät. Dadurch verändert sich die Architekturdisziplin. In großen Entwicklungsvorhaben sind Kommunikation und ad-hoc Entscheidungen schwieriger. Wie ist agile Architekturarbeit hier sinnvoll möglich? Die 6. Ausgabe unseres Architektur-Spickers fasst die wichtigsten Aspekte zusammen. Download & Infos
