A Model for Prioritization of Software Architecture Effort

13 Apr 2019

This paper was presented at ECSA 2017 and is the result of an observation that a common difficulty for new architects is knowing where to focus their effort to maximise their effectiveness. This led us to wonder whether successful experienced architects have reusable heuristics or guidelines that they follow to help them prioritise their work. This paper describes a study we performed to investigate this question.
