slide21

Digital revolution is a wicked problem. The concept of wicked problems was defined by Rittel as complex and ill-defined problems (Rittel 1973). Wicked problems possess completely opposite features compared to tame problems, including being hard to define, ambiguous, unique, being caused by a variety of reasons and having no stopping point (Ritchey 2011). Therefore, wicked problems can not be solved by traditional ways and there are no correct or wrong solutions. Instead, there may be many possible approaches, even including some from a totally unrelated field (University of Technology Sydney 2012).
