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.
