Patrick examines the architect role from a number of perspectives—looking both inward and outward—to determine the different skill areas an architect requires to be successful. Patrick also shares some of the typical traps that an architect who focuses too much on a single aspect falls into and discusses their negative consequences to teams and organizations. Patrick concludes by offering a map for you to assess and plan your own development to learn and maintain a balanced set of skills and become a well-rounded architect.
