  • If you don't understand something you can't scale it.
  • Apprenticeships are the path to mastery
  • Analysis and synthesis aren't either/or

  • Design thinking isn't a best practice - don't start with the problem, seek serendipity.
  • Soft systems and visualisations (Checkland)
  • Exaption is cool
  • Don't be comfortable
