I'm reading his latest book, "The Essential Engineer", and this sentence stopped me cold:
Design is effectively proactive failure analysis
He was writing about the continual change in automobile design; how we can predict the changes coming in auto design by looking at what annoys us today or what features we wish it had or think it should have.
What a brilliant, simple statement!
Now apply it to ChurchWorld. Are there things that aren't working in your church? By identifying what is still lacking in your church today, is it possible to predict what will be standard in your church tomorrow?
What are you designing for tomorrow that is a correction to today?
