Actively drives projects and the organization to the ESA vision and management of the business domain solution portfolios. Develops strategic messaging that align business, information, and technology goals into an overall ESA roadmap while working with the PMO and delivery teams to monitor and report progress. Also, responsible for chairing the architecture reviews within the Portfolio Planning Governance process. Ensures all projects seeking to pass through gates meets architectural directions and standards.

In addition, sets standards for project solution architecture, and actively mentors Project Solution Architects to grow in their roles and advance in their careers.

Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Define key solution portfolios and ensure they are managed — either by heading that activity directly or by establishing and then supporting asset-centric portfolio management disciplines (for such solution portfolios as business application, service-oriented architecture [SOA] service or shared infrastructure).
- Develop road maps describing the evolution of all enterprise solution portfolios from current state to future state.
- Work closely with the program management office (PMO) or project office to ensure alignment of plans (including migration plans and road maps) with what is being delivered (projects).
- Ensure that project management or solution delivery life cycle efforts and project architects specifically leverage all aspects of enterprise architecture (EA) — separately by EA viewpoint (for example, business, information and technology) and via guidance at the ESA level across those viewpoints.
- Analyze enterprise business context (trends and business strategy), as well as change requirements in other EA viewpoints, to derive the ESA change requirements to guide solution decisions for the enterprise.
- Define principles to guide solution decisions for the enterprise.
- Define models, including solution patterns, to guide solution decisions for the enterprise.
- Assist with governance activities associated with ensuring ESA and, thus, EA compliance.
- Consult with application or infrastructure development projects to harmonize systems or infrastructure with the ESA, and identify when it is necessary to modify the solution architecture to accommodate project needs.
- Ensure that all individual solution architecture design and analysis work (particularly as specific solutions are created or upgraded in projects by project architects or solution architects) is documented in a structured fashion matching the EA framework and is stored in a common place.
- Understand and advocate the principles of business and IT strategies, as well as of EA development and service delivery. Be prepared to "sell" the EA process (overall, not just for ESA), its outcome and ongoing results, and to lead the communication, marketing or educational activities needed to ensure ESA success and use.
- Coordinate with enterprise business, information and technology architects.
