Simplicity

The usual trap of many companies is trying to be refreshingly new, exciting, trend driven.

In many instances it results in being excessively complicated, wanting things perfectly planned, looking for a non achievable goal or target.

What is being forgotten is the fact that those factors are what I call “outside influencers” and not necessarily drivers of internal improvement of processes, approach or well being of employees.

Simplicity brings clarity to people, processes and even data and ultimately makes things faster, easier, better. This includes the way your organization is build and organized INCLUDING the collaboration and organization between teams.

You can eliminate A LOT of unnecessary work and effort so reduce cost and increase speed of execution.

KEEP IT SIMPLE !

Just walked in front of our garden when i decided to take a picture as it looked so natural yet beautiful at the same time. How many times do we walk in nature without even noticing the things around us and how special they can be … this was one of those moments.

Just a beetle

Various reactions occur when seeing one of these … mother nature provided us with a large variety of animals in all colors and shapes.

At times, we realize how much we ignore nature and those simple things around us … it goes with a lot but small animals, insects, plants … we seem to no longer realize the environment we live in yet so beautiful if only we open our eyes.

no collaboration ?

Ever doubted why nobody get’s back to you ?

The real question is “what do they get from me IF THEY DO?” … collaboration starts with the simple willingness of a person or organization to help others and make a change by doing so.
