Role of Software Architect

Excellent article: An Overly Long Guide to Being A Software Architect by David Ing. It is a long read, so make yourself some comfort time to enjoy David's 11 bits of advice. Some of them is a good repetition of old truth, well worth repeating. Others brings new thoughts and ideas. Reading some of them made me laughting at my reflection in their funny mirrors. Enjoy.

One thing I believe is that in an organization a Software Architect should have a wide span. That is they should not just focus on a single project with a small group of people. Instead they should act as a knowledge manager for many people in the organization and possess a broad knowledge base.

Much like a manager a Software Architect is valued not so much as an individual contributor but as someone who amplifies the contributions of the people they work with.
