Re: Architecture as a Separate Function

I've known teams where the architect is integrated into the team yet still fails to own the solution, communicate the architecture, be trusted etc. While sitting in the middle of a team of developers you can still be in a metaphorical corner, isolated by your demeanour.

I'm sure I'm not alone in sometimes seeing (ok, and occasionally being) an architect that busies themself, as part of a team, with writing isolated framework code or complaining about code quality without bringing in any process to address it.

I've no doubt this is not a problem specific to architects but it does highlight that a role is often as much about temperament as it is about experience. Perhaps this is exacerbated by considering "architect" as a title of rank rather than as a role?
