Nobody said the simple way was the easy way, but it’s definitely a lot easier than the complex way.
The simple way is about clarity and commitment and following trough.
The complex way is about clarity and bureaucracy and the lowest common denominator.
The simple way is about talking things through, coming to an agreement about next steps and outcomes, and then taking those steps towards those outcomes – with the minimum admin necessary to provide banks for the river.
The complex way is about talking things through, holding a committee, reviewing and double-checking and nailing down details, an external audit, seven levels of documentation, a steering committee and a management board.
The simple way is hard: to be clear; to do what you say you’re going to do … and it’s how things actually get done.
The complex way is harder, and makes everything slower.
