    • Position: some things are better left uncoupled, or coupled with slack in them. This does not come naturally to systems engineers, so some thoughtful consideration needs to go into the process.
  • We need to connect the right things and connect them right.
    • Start with pre-mortems, and more holistic systems analysis.
