Design problems are hard to solve because, basically, they are inherently complex and this complexity increases the difficulty in understanding them and finding reasonable ways to resolve them. The task of designing the outcome at the same time as the context is embedded in design problems. Furthermore, no problem ever exists in complete isolation—every problem interacts with other problems and is therefore part of a set of interrelated problems. Because of this interconnectedness of problems, the design problem-solving process has to be a multidisciplinary endeavor—functional disciplines working in close collaboration across functions, instead of looking in narrow silos like ergonomics, finance, human factors, product design, or marketing, to name a few.
