Additional Information

As Endava grows, we have an increased need for technical leadership and delivery excellence for our clients.

The role of Technical Authority is motivated primarily by providing the AGU's to grow with technology strategy support, innovation thinking, and lean improved delivery (at scale).

A Technical Authority is similar to that of the sub-CTO and is intended that they will have a close working relationship with the CTO, but rather than being concerned with the technical direction of Endava as a whole, the AGU Principal Consultant of Enterprise Architecture focuses primarily on the needs and concerns of their AGU. This will involve understanding the technical and business trends in their industries and communicating the implications of them across their AGU and the wider Endava via service offer owners, DU managers, and Group Heads of Discipline.
