  8. 8. My Skills and the Wicked Problems: Systems – a discussion Systems – different layers of reality that your designs shape and that in return create the constraints of design. Skills – your skills as a designer. Your skills are your possibility for finding solutions in different systems. Wicked Problems - new level of problems that are complex by nature and can not have one-trick-solutions. What did you find challenging? Even defining wicked problems are is difficult. Every definition was closing another definition. How do we describe and visualize our skills Simplyfying the tons of information into drawings with people from so different backgrounds Time-constraints Did you find the ways through which your skills shape the different systems? Concrete project idea. We have a great team is skill sets According to the way you use your skills in the systems you can solve a problems or create them Wicked problems in our skills - what we are doing is difficult, but many designers think its easy.perjantaina 26. elokuuta 2011
