Leadership and Communication
Architecture, whether it is enterprise, solution, or information; is about far more than just being savvy, knowing your company or its IT, and being able to draw nice pictures on a whiteboard. According to Gartner, influence is the top key skill for Enterprise Architects. In your gut you know some people are more effective than others at delivering enterprise architecture value. You know your team could be more effective if they could just work together.
Effective architects lead. They direct architecture teams. They guide stakeholders through transforming their organization. Conexiam wants to help you be a great leader. Our leadership curriculum starts with this Leadership and Communications course and continues with the option of professional coaching for you and your team.
Conexiam uses standard, proven assessments to help you understand your unique combination of innate attributes. If you have unique ways of understanding the enterprise architecture, so do others. We communicate more effectively with others. Effective communication and team leadership are key to getting buy-in and commitment to the enterprise architecture transformation programs.
Enterprise and solution architects need to know both how to understand the message from the business and how to get their message to the set of stakeholders.
