Software architects have many duties, ranging from devising software solutions to influencing key stakeholders and communicating with external parties. De Caluwe has developed a model which distinguishes five ways of thinking about and dealing with change in organizations:

- Yellow change focuses on power and interests

- Blue change stands for detailed planning and controlling processes

- Red change focuses on developing people

- Green change is about learning and building a learning organization

- White change means stimulating the willingness that is inherent in organization

The aim of this project is to build a dashboard to assess organizations and their architects according to the above color scheme. It involves devising a questionnaire or survey instrument, and testing it on a number of organizations. The project is done in cooperation with CIBIT.
