"In order to achieve the discipline and due diligence necessary for successfully developing and enhancing architectures, I have always believed it to be necessary to follow a tried and trusted architecture development method. I have been wary of lean and agile processes that claim to overcome any inconvenient constraints of these methods. However, in this book the authors advocate learning from the management and control of software factories in order to add agility to the architecture development process without losing that discipline, or corrupting the due diligence. As these authors have a vast amount of practical architectural expertise, I look forward to putting their practical experience to good use in the future."
