Are software architects not working hand-in-hand with developers?

Some time ago, a project I participated as a team manager, called my attention. The development team was constantly complaining about the complexity they had to grapple with for implementing every single use case. When asked whether their difficulty lay in the technological aspects, or even if the core business involved was too complex, they reported that their problem was elsewhere. Namely the challenge actually had to do with the steps they had to follow in order to attain, for instance, a simple CRUD respecting the architecture designed by the software architect. A CRUD with just two attributes required the development of 10 different classes to allow the insertion of a simple record in the database.

Then I coincidentally came across a blog posted by Okke van
