Architecture Principles

Architectural principles are the architect's tools for establishing the most important principles. They set frameworks for the design of the organization and the associated information provision. Thereby creating clarity and preventing useless discussions. In addition, they ensure that important risks are avoided. Architecture principles are, therefore, the cornerstone of architecture, and drafting them is a core skill of architects.

In this course, both current theoretical insights and practical experiences with architectural principles are discussed. As a result, the participant is able to understand what architectural principles are, but he or she also receives practical tools to apply them in practice.
