Only if you see design activity as a linear process.
Often its more loopy.

Hi David (and listers)
I must say in my limited understanding of whatever is common to design
activity that the notion of articulating the problem space (central to
interaction design and other fields) seems to be a relevant phase for many
design fields. It seems to work on suspending the desire to draw, design
whatever and trying to figure out what possibilities there are for
responding to the problem/situation that is set - it precedes the
metaphor/concept etc., phase for beginning to delineate the different
possible responses to the problem ... Am I on the money here?
