A Wicked Problem, roughly speaking, has a number of properties:
The problem is not understood until after the
formulation of a solution.
Wicked problems have no stopping
Solutions to wicked problems are not right or
Every wicked problem is essentially novel and
Every solution to a wicked problem is a 'one
Wicked problems have no given alternative
Software development is largely a Wicked Problem, or in headline
It is faster to create a solution to the problem than to estimate how
long it will take to create that solution with any degree of accuracy, and the
estimate will still be wrong.
