Overview

This indispensable new handbook focuses on 12 specific skills every software architect needs to succeed: skills involved in becoming a superior technologist and an outstanding technical champion in your organization.

Ideal for both working and aspiring software architects, 12 More Essential Skills for Software Architects is the perfect complement and follow-up to Dave Hendricksen's previous book, 12 Essential Skills for Software Architects. In this new guide, Hendricksen focuses on three sets of skills that will have the greatest impact on your ability to succeed and ascend:

Product Development Skills : Partnership, Discovery, Modeling, Leverage, and Estimating
Oversight Skills : Platform/Project Oversight, Capital Planning, and Risk Management
Visionary Skills : Road Mapping, Researching, Trend Awareness, and Branding

Unlike most software architecture guides, Hendricken's books place real-world practice in the context of the development organization and the business, and help you blend the optimal mix of both hard and soft skills. Valuable both for initial instruction and as a lasting reference, this guide will help you learn and succeed in your next software architecture role--in any organization, at any level.
