Future of Business: Changing the Game through Simplification

June 25, 2014 by Bonnie D. Graham

Today’s buzz: Simplification.

Complexity is intensifying for businesses, communities and us as individuals. Is this what we really want or need?

If this complexity trend perpetuates in established companies, at risk are the agility, adaptability, scalability, and cost-effectiveness that allow leaner, simpler organizations to compete better and win bigger.

But before you try to recapture your long-gone simplicity via new organizational design, technology tools and business processes, first figure out how you got this way. If you don’t understand what caused the problem, how will you avoid repeating it?

The experts speak.

Suzanne Passante, Day & Zimmerman: “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” (Albert Einstein)

Matt Healey, TBR: “Never confuse a clear view with a short distance.”

David Fowler, SAP Services: “The most important things in life aren’t THINGS.”
