  • We run open enrollment Software Architecture Workshops as well as in-house workshops. Team-focused workshops are highly energizing and productive, as we do important work on the team's architecture project, giving a huge boost to the project as well as providing a learning experience focused on the Visual Architecting Process. We also work with teams to tailor the process to best suit their project and organization.
