I did Toastmasters with an interesting character a few years ago. This person had recently left a very successful career in sports management in the USA; they decided they wanted a change in direction. They had completed an MBA with a reputable university and picked up an Enterprise Architect role (responsible for IT integration) with a large public-sector organisation. This person - who I really liked - had no background whatsoever in programming (or IT for that matter). My friend is now with a global IT consultancy, is called a "Business Architect" (as opposed to an EA) and has developed a successful international career.
[For lack of a more interesting picture - here is my skateboard]
Is the above is an example of an architect who doesn't/didn't code? Perhaps. I think that the person in my example at least is better suited to (and probably more comfortable with) Business Architecture, in any case.
