Untangling Wicked Digital Problems

Wicked Problems are the black holes we are building into our future tech.

Affirmation #1: Idealising for the end user isn’t valuable if you don’t take as much care to understand the contextual constraints you have to design within — even if those issues are not immediately apparent to the end user.

Affirmation #2: As a UX professional, it is no longer an option to have low technical literacy — start speaking dev, take time to learn about the big legacy challenges most organisations face and be pragmatic.

Affirmation #3: There is no blame game available to you. “They” is replaced by “We”. There is no right or wrong only this way or that way, based on the best understanding WE can achieve.

Affirmation #4: Do not be beholden to the propaganda
