Post Facto Architecture

"If your design can be expressed in code, do it; if it can't then model it first." - Grady Booch

Grady Booch was asked the question "which matters more: the architecture as designed or the one the running system happens to have?" He said that this was a silly topic "akin to asking what matters more to water, oxygen or hydrogen?".

Considering the development phase of an enterprise system is probably no more than 20% of its lifecycle, the Post Facto Architecture would seem to have a broader economic impact.
