I recently read the article from Dr Gerald Gray (@) on “Chief Enterprise Architect as Transformational and Transactional Leader“.
What I enjoyed most is that Dr. Gray succinctly captured the duality of the the day to day of the Chief Architect. The biggest challenge I face on a day-to-day is working at the transformational level with the CxO executives then jumping into the transactional aspects of a programme deployment and dealing with both the people vs. outcome focus which is overlaid with the situational leadership model that is presented.
Some day’s I’m successful in juggling these multiple, competing goals…. others not so much.
