Our thanks to Anders Jangbrand of CSC for this amusing model. As you can see, Southbeach, while retaining a high integrity of meaning, can nevertheless express concepts visually.

Everything is both useful and harmful. Decomposing agents into their useful and harmful elements is central to TRIZ and to Southbeach. We understand this instinctively in life. Hence the saying, a blessing in disguise. In this model, the blessing (useful) has a dotted border. In Southbeach, this means 'potential'. We have also added the delay modifier to the production ... since the blessing is often realized later than the immediate harm.
