Analysis: breaking complex issues into understandable components
Synthesis: assembling and communicating the critical building blocks required to comprehend complex issues
"My career work reflects these two notions. Complex issues can appear overwhelming until they are broken down into more manageable and understandable pieces. Ideas are only useful when they can be communicated. Therefore the ability to place those pieces into a useful context and to reassemble them into a coherent if sometimes messy whole is just as important."
