A Workshop on Architecture Competence
This report summarizes a workshop on architecture competence that was held at the Carnegie Mellon ® Software Engineering Institute (SEI) in June of 2008. The SEI invited accomplished practitioners from government, academia, and industry to discuss key issues in assessing the competence of organizations that use architecture to produce software-reliant systems. After several opening talks by individuals who recounted their experience in competence improvement efforts, workshop participants divided into working groups. Each group was tasked with working on a specific set of issues and was asked to produce a set of questions that could appear in a competence assessment instrument.
