Not so long ago I wanted to read something about a large scale architecture and mistakenly decided that Technology Strategy Patterns by Eben Hewitt was about that. It’s not, but it was still interesting to read. The book provides a bunch of nice patterns for delivering information to product-people and stakeholders. The book covers a few ways of doing long-range planning and analysis with some examples from the real world. It even has some Powerpoint and Excel advice.
Although somehow the book was useful for me and I’ve learned a bunch of new stuff, I’m definitely not the target audience of it.
