Four traps experienced solution architects fall into, and how to mitigate them

Here’s my “four traps” deck (MS PowerPoint) from the Geekle solution architecture summit, January 2021.

Why?

Experienced architects are not immune to falling into traps of their own making.

By looking at some specific ones we can be more aware of what we do, and why,
so that we can self-improve.

What’s In This For You?

Four traps I have seen architects fall into: their causes & consequences, plus some potential mitigations.

How to use this deck:

  1. Evaluate yourself honestly against each of the causes.  Seek feedback.
  2. Consider the mitigations; action the ones you think will work for you.
  3. Repeat – seek continuous incremental improvement.
