Upstream is upstream from the brief. Working upstream involves having no preconceived challenge or solution paths embedded in the approach or toolbox. Working Downstream: Starting from a framed or semi-framed challenge in the form of a brief. Downstream is downstream from the brief. Working downstream presumes preconceived challenge and solution paths are embedded in the approach or toolbox. This typically means someone has already decided generally what the challenges and opportunities are. (Product Design, Service Design, etc.)
