The Role of an Architect
Check out this month's issue of Architect Journal. Simon and gang have done an excellent job in this issue exploring the skillset of the architect, including technical and soft skills. There is also a profile piece on Paul Preiss, founder of IASA, which is a good read. Also enjoyed fellow AE Joe Shirey and his article "The Softer Side of the Architect". Check it out.
Also remember that you can read the content in the special Journal Reader application, a WPF Smart Client that supports offline reading of the Architect Journal.
