I am coming to you with a couple of questions regarding requirements for the solution architect role.
My organization prefers to promote solution architects from within the center of excellence as opposed to hiring someone new for the position.
- In your opinion - what are the essential and recommended requirements for a developer to be promoted to a solution architect role?
- Do you have any experience on the issue of hiring someone new vs promoting from within that you can share?
- How can an organization prepare developers to meet solution architect requirements and fill that position?
- Do you know any good resources essential to a solution architects skillset?
