The central theme of modern architecting is value-in-use for knowledge workers over the architecting horizon. This is based on the idea that an architecture of an organisation or system represents its fundamental and bridge elements, which are different for each knowledge worker. The formulation and formation of architecture, and architecture representations can be used as an instrument to inform, advise, guide and direct decision making, as well as a traditional blueprint .
Modern architecting offers a rich toolbox!
The Work centric approach to architecting focus on the needs and concerns of knowledge workers. This as opposed to a focus on frameworks and predefined work practices. Is such it focus on:
Who is doing what, with what, with whom, and for what purpose? What questions should be answered? What alternatives and choices should be explored ? etc.
Power and value to the knowledge workers!
