To be, or not to be: Agile Architect


Arijit specializes in helping companies realize gains in efficiency by adopting agile principles and practices such as Scrum (and Extreme Programming). Arijit started his technology career back in 1998 and was one of the founding members of the first education portal from Eastern India. After working as a software developer, a development lead/manager, a business development manager and a variety of other jobs in between, he finally settled on his true calling, project and program management in Agile space. Arijit was a formally trained - project & program manager, before adding agile to his project tool belt. He began developing agile skills at Zinfi Technologies Inc, and gradually strengthened it even further when he moved to AOL Bangalore (India). He continued to grow his skills to the point where he was able to help other teams adopt agile practices. Today, with around 15 years of experience under his belt, Arijit continues to develop his craft by experimenting and practicing with project teams at many different organizations. Core competencies include: * Agile Project Management (Scrum/XP/Kanban) * Program Management (cross location) * Delivery Management * Team Building/Training/Development * Internet/Social Media business consultancy * Operation Management


Agile has always challenged people with the age old question - how much to design upfront? But is the confusion just there? Frankly, it doesn't even start there! Anyone understands the need of an architect, but how do we position an Architect within an Agile environment? How does Enterprise Architects work in sync with a Solution Architect? How should business leverage the niche skills of an architect to ensure the scalability of the application? And how are the architects coping with the changing dynamics of development methodology? How does this practice work in an onshore-offshore environment? We take a look in to the current challenges & answer to all the above questions. We try to ensure that Agile delivery makes the best use of architects and architects don't shy away from Agile world.


(1) We learn how to best position architects in an Agile project (2) We will understand how architecture is shaped up in a large, distributed Agile program (3) Also, intention is to put a clear picture to Architects - who are planning to work on Agile projects, as how they can plan to drive their work (& what to expect)
