The Meta-Architecture Toolbox™
Architecture Mentors has developed a meta-construct to assist architects in understanding how the practice of architecture is conducted. This is useful for individuals to frame their own approach to architecture as well as for organizations to develop and refine a more complete approach for the entire architecture organization.

How do you use The Toolbox™?
- New / Aspiring Architect – Lay out a comprehensive and logical path to become an architect
- Current Architect - Validate your own approach to architecture and look for gaps
- Enterprises - Make sense of all the things out there with the word ‘architect’ and put some structure in place so that various architecture practitioners within the organization can speak the same language.
The usage of the toolbox by individuals and organizations is closely linked to the concept of Architecture Maturity (and the corresponding Meta-Architecture Maturity Model™). Often the toolbox is used as a frame of reference to discuss one or more aspects of an individual’s, team’s, or organization’s architecture maturity.
