Thanks, Maarten. If I only had a nickel for every time I fell down the rabbit hole of designing an app as a solution when it wasn’t really the solution, I wouldn’t have to work at all. I think you are right — we often forget the “why.”

I have been in touch with and have interviewed with some companies who do seem to get it. So, I have hope.
