I like the idea but I didn't find the article to be clear.

I feel like the last section was the most helpful but still very high level:

So how do we learn to recognise problems?

We learn to recognise problems by being exposed to many problems and understand these subproblems. Through these reflective cycles where we conceptualise based on our experience, we build concepts of problematic s.

Especially deep understanding of the underlying mechanisms that give cause to problems casts a wider net in recognising them, such as the calory intake and physical activity example for the dietician.

Recognising problems is essentially building new concepts by engaging directly in the situation. That’s why problem interviews or observing your customers are important ways of researching, they give you concrete experiences to reflect on and conceptualise problems.
