See situations as pretexts to wonder, assume incomplete knowledge, and design tools/protocols to further investigate and continuously reframe those situations; the former is outcome-based, the latter: process-based.

Contra >The snag is, that the whole conceptual framework, system boundaries, criteria, faintly envisaged trajectories, possible tools, collaborators, in other words - the components of the process - become an outcome to be designed first.
