Agile has increasingly become the de-facto method for delivering IT solutions, whilst architecture continues to play an important role in maintaining alignment to strategy and standards. The need to marry these two disciplines together is the reality of modern IT delivery today. When done well, this can provide immense value and has helped many organisations to be successful.

Collaborative working across Agile and delivery
Combining architectural governance and agility to deliver at pace
Creating an outline of architecture up front
How team organisation impacts architecture and agility
