This book is useful for anyone associated with Information Technology, architecture, design or development. It is also relevant for leaders in any field.
The first part of the book has a collection of essays on the essence of IT architecture. It covers a wide range of topics, from the spirit of architectural thinking, practical methods, and pitfalls to avoid. It defines the right aims for an architect in no uncertain terms. The eclectic set of articles deals not only with some of the essential technical approaches but the vital soft skills that are integral to an excellent architect. It takes up communication, drawing and redesign. Reading them will equip you with the mental tools required to produce quality architecture. More importantly, it will imbue you with the right attitude to achieve excellence independently.
In the second half, the author shares insights on leadership. The essays are written from personal leadership experience and close observation of senior executives of several well-known brands. The topics include emotional intelligence, motivation and working with others. The essays on self-realization, empathy, understanding oneself, and others are aimed at becoming an effective leader of people. The author makes it clear that these positive psychologies also make one calm, happy, peaceful and joyous.
These forty lessons on architecture and leadership from an experienced practitioner are an invaluable combination to enjoy the creative process and reach the highest levels of accomplishment. It is not a primer or technical manual only for IT architects. All those who appreciate a different perspective will find much to delight in it.
The pieces are variously humorous, biting, heartfelt and wistful. They'll move and entertain you. Keep it by your side and peruse it now and then.
