Every organisation wants it, talks about doing it, very few actually do it.
Because we are subconsciously trained – by books, experts and academia, that organisations must be complex.
They don’t – they must not, as our brains have one overall, primary function – to keep us alive. To do that it must conserve energy, and understand things quickly.
As Human Beings we will actively fight against what we do not understand – think PowerPoints, Spreadsheets and Project Plans.
Some examples of simple:
Netflix’s expense guidance: ‘Act in Netflix’s best interests’.
Overriding purpose of shipping rules – ‘Thou shalt not collide’.
1: Keep Britain Safe.
2: Keep getting better at 1.
A suggested general rule on simplicity:
‘Would a ten year old child, or a golden retriever dog understand what I am about to say?’
If not, simplify.
With my love and best wishes to you all
