  1. There are lot of experts involved, but no one is really excited.
  2. You are talking for more than a day about concepts and architectures without a single Proof Of Concept or even discussion of code.
  3. You are just selling the features without explaining the consequences.
  4. You start with a multi-layer architecture without highlighting the "added value" of each layer and its individual responsibilities.
  5. You are searching for the "silver bullet" architecture, with which all known and, even, future requirements can be fulfilled.
  6. You are trying to identify hotspots and shortcomings in advance with ...UML.
  7. There is no clear vision defined; there is no clear relationship between the vision and the resulting architecture.
  8. The is no secondary strategy... you have only one "master plan".
  9. You are thinking in pictures, not in code. You believe that pictures are more valuable than code.
  10. The architect/s believe they can be smarter / have more experience than the whole development team.
