Architecture Analysis training now available

A two-day Architecture Analysis training course is now available for delivery on-site. Centred around the Solution Architecture Review Method (SARM), it covers all aspects of architecture analysis including:

  • Risk trade-off analysis
  • Architecturally Significant Requirements and Decisions
  • Quality Attributes and Quality Models
  • Functional and non-functional requirements
  • Stakeholder analysis
  • Benefits realisation
  • Cost benefit analysis

Over the two days, participants develop a case study working in groups, considering requirements, developing a service concept, applying design thinking methods to improve their designs, then collaborating on a trade-off analysis of the competing solutions. Following a single case study from inception through to evaluation of competing designs helps to build a comprehensive understanding of this critical capability.

A more complex worked example is also explored, enabling participants to see how analysis can be conducted on a substantial business system.

See here for a more detailed overview of the course agenda.

SARM training course

Our first “packaged” offering will be a training course to help architects and their organisations adopt the Solution Architecture Review Method (SARM) as part of their architectural practices. The course will be aimed primarily at enterprise, solution and software architects, but as the method was developed with both IT and Service architectures in mind, it can also be of interest to Service Designers.

The course will be given by the originator of SARM, Dr Simon Field, principal consultant at Lefert Consulting. Further details about the course will be posted here, but if you have an interest in hosting the course at your organisation, please do contact us.
