Abstract: Large IT projects in the public sector often fail and project delays and cost overruns are frequent. It is generally accepted that IT architecture can help to prevent this, but how to establish the quality of architecting? The research relied on literature study and analyses to provide the basis for a scorecard that can be used to establish the quality of architecture. A prototype of the scorecard was produced and judged by experts. The research was fundamental in nature in that it tried to fathom the essence of the concept of architecture, a phenomenon that has existed for over 2000 years. The literature we chose did not focus on IT but rather the architecture (theory) for the building sector. The findings were compared with modern literature about IT architecture and also systems architecting beyond IT. On this basis the prototype was designed. The experts who judged the scorecard concluded unanimously that the approach chosen was appropriate with a view to the research aim.
