    Technical Design Authority?

    I have started a new role today where I am the Technical Lead on a new DPM \ SCCM installation.

    My first job is to implement DPM 2010 and once that's implemented I need to deploy SCCM alongside the local IT engineers.

    All of this is based on my design but obviously with their input.

    I am not too sure how to sign the documentation

    Currently it's

    Prepared by
    Simon D*****
    Architect.

    but I don't know if it should be Architect, Solutions Architect or Technical Design Authority.

    What are your views?

    Job titles are so far fetching and varied these days that quite often no one cares. Either that or they are so meaningless to the job that you do that they are irrelevant anyway!

    I took my Job title off my email ages ago, now I just have:

    He should have "BosonMichael" as his job title. It's simply that awesome.

    You can borrow it, if you like.

    If you want to use a job title, why not use the one your company gave you?

    If they didn't give you one, make one up.
    I went through a phase of making up pretentious job titles depending on who I was talking to.
    It was fun for a while, then got boring.

    Word of warning though, you can't win against the Americans so don't play the game. :biggrin

    It's really off-putting when you get an email from:

    "Jay Nixon Ford III (Jnr)
    Lead product development consultant, technical design Vice President's division, sustainable resource evangelist and chairman of the company softball team."

    Ha ha I've just remembered that scene in the Simpsons where Homer says "I want to be Vice President. . . NO WAIT! Junior Vice president" ha ha ha

    We call you lot Technical Architects here and maybe I'm just used to it, but saying "who's the TA on this one", is something we say a lot round these here parts :biggrin

    Remember your American history: the Texas Rangers had to call on the assistance of the Volunteers of Tennessee to get the job done. :thumbleft
