In the book, I’ve written about several standard instruments of the orthodox enterprise architecture approach. One of these is the use of ‘architecture principles’. I’m convinced, personally, that these often do more bad than good and this has to do with the difference between prescriptive and descriptive rules. Anyway, I’ve put this argument in a short post up on my InfoWorld blog: Architecture principles considered harmful. Enjoy.
And I wonder how much Flak I will get.
