Companies today “deal with greater business complexity than ever before,” according to Yves Morieux and Peter Tollman. As companies strive to fulfill an increasing number of performance requirements, contend with shifting trade barriers and technological evolution, and meet the demands of diverse stakeholders, their road to productivity is made much more difficult.
In their recently released book, “Six Simple Rules: How to Manage Complexity without Getting Complicated,” authors Morieux and Tollman outline strategies to help companies learn how to succeed in complex business climates.
While business complexity presents significant challenges, it also opens up room for opportunity, according to the authors.
“Increasingly, the winners in today’s business environment are those companies that know how to leverage complexity and exploit it to create competitive advantage,” the book states.
The authors’ six simple rules help businesses cut through the complicated organizational structures and procedures they employ in response to complexity. In giving companies the tools to better manage complexity, the rules aim to inspire greater productivity, innovation and workplace morale.
“Six Simple Rules” is available on www.800ceoread.com for $24.
