Complicated vs. Complex

What’s the difference? Having a wedding is complicated – having a happy marriage is complex.

Broadly speaking, challenges are either technical or creative in nature. Complicated challenges can be solved by experts, following an explicit or implicit checklist and applying their expertise. Complex challenges are unstable and unpredictable, only high-variety talent, rapid leaps forward, and trial and error can enable success. Experts can never guarantee success because a step-by-step solution doesn’t exist. In a complicated domain, knowledge is power; in the complex domain, a fully tapped diversity of talent is power.
