The video discusses ways to shorten the architectural feedback loop by communicating with stakeholders, using familiar tools, and simplifying documentation. It also suggests that architects be open about their design decisions and always open to feedback.

  • 00:00:00 Architecture is not just done by architects, fortunately, and one of the ways to resolve the tension between Architects and Agile Teams is to look at how we can get the best of both worlds- by using both practices as solutions to the same problem.
  • 00:05:00 The video discusses how architects can speed up their feedback loops by communicating with stakeholders and listening to their drivers. This can help make better design decisions.
  • 00:10:00 The video discusses how the architectural feedback loop can be shortened by looking at individual architectural decisions rather than the architecture document as a whole. It goes on to provide five tips for speeding up the process.
  • 00:15:00 The first tip for getting feedback from stakeholders is to be open about your decisions and concerns. The second tip is to use familiar tools to ask for feedback on your decisions. The third and fourth tips are to invite feedback and to make your architecture documentation as simple as possible.
  • 00:20:00 The author suggests that architects use a Wiki to document their design decisions, simplify the architecture documentation, and reduce the feedback loop. He also suggests that architects be vulnerable about their design and always open to the possibility that their design may be wrong. The author provides examples of how a template can become bloated, and how Architects can abuse a template as a knowledge repository.
  • 00:25:00 This video discusses how to create living and minimal architecture documentation using three different goals as a guide. First, a risk concern is addressed to show stakeholders that their concerns are being addressed. Second, architectural knowledge is stored for later use. Finally, collaborative decision-making is facilitated using architectural views.
  • 00:30:00 This video discusses ways to reduce the size of architecture, focusing on the importance of architecture decisions being delivered continuously and inviting feedback. It also discusses the benefits of simplifying your architecture documentation template and getting involved in delivery.
