Thanks, Sergio. Once thing I've come to appreciate is that we keep solving the same problems. The solutions we "discover" to project problems today were in place decades ago, but someone will re-brand the solutions and make a good living off it.

As I glanced through the article, I couldn't help but think of how many frameworks tackle this same basic problem of high uncertainty.

Thanks for sharing the article Wade. Sounds a bit like a science experiment process.

Not a bad analogy, Andrew. The fashion industry must constantly renew itself to force consumers to buy new clothes. Similarly, the business world seems to keep repackaging management techniques with new buzzwords so we can sell new certifications.

Great comments. The HBR and McKinsey archives are great places to find tools and techniques relevant today that were developed many years ago.
