    I found this white board illustration quite interesting. I have been trying to put this information in perspective using the framework of a business. I have not been able to get my head around how this information might be applied.

    Could you distill the lesson of this illustration down to a sentence or two to help me process what I am seeing?

    design & planning: a continuum of actions intended to come up with a strategy and a plan to cope with/exploit the situation

    we plan when its clear (from experience) what should be done. We design when the problem is uncertain and/or the world is too complex for prediction and control

    the 2 are related but quite different
