Tame Vs. Wicked Problems

Tame problems are the ones where everyone agrees on the problem and therefore can work together to resolve it. Like the problem of Cholera. There are clear metrics to figure out when the problem is resolved.

Wicked problems are where there is no consensus. Like climate change or poverty or racism. It’s difficult to define the problem or agree on it and therefor they don’t get resolved.

The overall talk is fascinating and so so insightful!
