What I found was number 1 required capability was communication. IF the IT architects had that then distinguishing capabilities were (1) specific modes of problem solving (analysing alternatives before trying any actual solution and always analysing outcomes even if they worked) (2) their attitude towards the future and how they acted in alignment with that attitude.

Also taught techniques on problem solving and future time orientation to post graduate students to see if we could improve with some success as well.

Now on IT architects and their attitude, there is (currently anecdotal) evidence that EQ is the most critical factor, and if you have high EQ then god complexes usually don't show up!
