When everyones an Architect.. no one is..
I think this is the first time I have written a “rant” post (for a while at least) so if you don’t want to hear me whine run away now!
In the past 12 months I think I have met more folk with Architect in their job title than I truly believe is valid. Now I will be clear this is not a slight on the individuals all of them have been exceptional (at least the ones I have had the pleasure to work with).
An architect is a person who plans, designs, and oversees..
However what I feel is happening is a devaluation of the job title/meaning. While I understand many people pursue that job role/title as an end goal for their current career plan imo it’s getting quite ridiculous how many now seem to exist.
Too many chiefs (in title) not enough indians?
Maybe I am off base, what do you think?
