Why Can’t I Easily Port SharePoint Designer Workflow Solutions From One List to Another?

Mark Miller has posted my latest End User oriented SharePoint Designer Workflow article up on his site here:

I attempt to provide a straight-forward answer to the question, "Why can’t I easily port a SharePoint designer workflow from development to test?"  In the process, I also give some insight into what SPD is actually doing behind the scenes when we use it to create a workflow solution.

Next week, I describe an End User friendly way to port SPD workflow from one server to another, or at least as End User friendly a solution as is possible given the state of the tool set.
