37 Things One Architect Knows by Gregor HohpeWhat does it mean to be an architect? Drawing boring diagrams? Sending messages from the ivory tower? Or maybe flooding people with lengthy presentations containing 20 bullet points per slide?
In his book Gregor Hohpe shows a totally different point of view showing 37 things from different areas of an architects work like Architecture or Organization.
The author uses a pattern-like approach. The book is filled with self-references and using chapter names as patterns. Although one could argue that these things are not truly patterns, for sure it helps to remember much more and to create a map for navigating across these ideas. To tell the truth, if you ever worked in an enterprise IT department, you probably saw majority of the problems described by the author. Still, noticing and giving it a thought are two different things, so if you had these kind of experiences, the book will be even more valuable.
The best parts were Black Markets Are Not Efficient , describing how fast paths for privileged groups of people are rotting organizations and Economies of Speed showing again that to be a good player nowadays, an IT-based company must deliver its products fast, in a stable pace.

This book shows architects and technology leaders how to take an active role in enterprise IT transformation by combining organization, technical, and communication skills. Many large enterprises are feeling pressure from the rapid digitalization of the world: digital disruptors attack unexpectedly with brand-new business models; the "FaceBook generation" has dramatically different user expectations; and a whole slew of new technologies has become available to everyone with a credit card. This is tough stuff for enterprises that have been, and still are, very successful, but are built around traditional technology and organizational structures. Not as easily done as said. They combine the technical, communication, and organizational skill to understand how a tech stack refresh can actually benefit the business, what "being agile" and "DevOps" really mean, and what technology infrastructure is needed to assure quality while moving faster. Their job is not an easy one, though: they must maneuver in an organization where IT is often still seen as a cost center, where operations means "run" as opposed to "change", and where middle-aged middle-management has become cozy neither understanding the business strategy nor the underlying technology.

They ride the Architect Elevator to connect the penthouse, where the business strategy is defined, and the engine room, where the enabling technology is implemented. How to get there in the first place?
