Technologists at the UW engaged in technical decisions will help to define and share a UW EA vision and strategy and will have relationships they can draw upon to help make decisions in line with that vision.  These technologists form a pool of expertise that the Director of EA & Strategy and others can draw on. 


  1. Develop relationships with other members of the UW community engaged in solving technical problems

  2. Share technical architecture expertise within the UW community

  3. Better understand the business context and business drivers for technical decisions

  4. Establish a shared understanding of UW EA vision.

  5. Collaborate to apply architectural principles to solving problems.

  6. Provide a pool of experts to provide input to the EA program and other efforts.

  7. Create small action teams that may solve limited scale problems or recommend work, likely by creating project charter.
