Praise for Communication Patterns

From the Back Cover

Having a great idea or design is not enough to achieve success. You must communicate your vision effectively to gain stakeholder support for your design and secure collaboration and contribution from your teams. In this practical book, author Jacqui Read shows you how to successfully present your architecture and gain the commitment and understanding you need from stakeholders.

Discover how to effectively communicate to avoid misunderstandings that can lead to increasing costs, unmet requirements, and an architecture that is not what you intended. Through constructive examples and patterns, this book shows you how to express your message clearly to the different audiences you'll face.

This book shows you how to:

  • Design diagrams and documentation suitable for your expected audience, intended message, and project stage
  • Create artifacts that are accessible to those with varying roles, needs, or disabilities
  • Master written, verbal, and nonverbal communication to succeed in technical settings
  • Communicate and collaborate with distributed teams to successfully design and document software and technical projects
  • Apply the communication patterns presented in this book in real-world projects and software designs
