    This was already on thin ice and then I got to the 50 questions to ask yourself part Seriously, 50 50 questions to figure out how to simplify I honestly thought it was a joke Nope, it started going through the questions.

    Why Simple Wins identifies exactly why so many of us are overwhelmed by today s culture of busyness increased metrics, CYA tactics, meetings all day every day, 24 7 email But it also provides tools to cut through workday clutter and shows us how to simplify tasks and focus on big picture goals By working a few of the tools, I realized that less than half of my work is actually valuable to my clients director After conversations with them, I ve managed to eliminate and outsource several of the less valuable assignments and meetings t...

    Why Simple Wins was an odd duck of a book While about simplicity, I found the book repetitive And I was surprised at the perspectives on simplicity presented here most of the book is on business simplicity, generally process simplicity, while parts are about personal simplicity, like the simple living books popular in the self help section of the bookstore This dichotomy is unnecessary, especially in a book on wait for it simplicity As a business book, beyond the issues mentioned above I thought that the content was quite interesting and possibly quite valuable So many of these types of books are little than advertisements for what the author s consulting firm can do for your company While there was some of that in here, I was pleasantly surprised to run across sample documents, available on the internet, as well as process descriptions that were extremely detailed, with numbered steps and examples of correct and incorrect uses This is not to say that the process was detailed the process described is general com...

    A two article book, meaning the meat could have been contained in two 20 page articles That s pretty good, many of these books could be easily replaced by a single article or, in some cases, a five slide presentation However, despite the real value of the tools provided it loses lots points as a book for a couple of reasons.First, some very muddy thinking At one point, the author alludes to the difficulty of quantifying complexity, launches into a few anecdotes, then says now that we ve determined what complexity is I re read the section twice before deciding that the author didn t actually know what complexity was, a discovery which was born out by the rest of the book and emphasized by the occasional use of complex and complicated as synonyms This sort of sloppiness is on display throughout the book, to the point that while I m convinced that the author has valuable experience with simplicity, and that they know it when they see it, I m frankly uncertain that they understand what simplicity is.Second, the astounding irony of filling up 200 pages with an enormous amount of filler in the course of making an argument to keep things simple There were whole chapters that were superfluous Chapter 5 was downright embarrassing And there was no chapter that was free from that worst of all busin...

    This was a fast paced read on how complexity has essentially taken over businesses and business operations The book highlights nothing too earth shattering on how having complex processes can slow things down, hinder creativity, and make for a bad work environment The book includes practical tips and tricks however, I do feel like the huge focus on reducing emails and meetings is really only treating the symptom of the problem Companies need to dig deep as to why all of those emails and meetings are required in the first place are we all too polite, has no one been deemed a decision maker, are processes so complex that you need multiple meetings or emails to figure them etc, etc Bodell touches on these issues a little bit, but compared to how much she focuses on how to run efficient meetings and communicative effectively, I don t think there was enough of a focus Simplicity is a huge, complicated ironic, I know concept to roll out it needs a cultural...

    I was really excited when I started the book as it described a person who was overworked and overwhelmed and I thought I d receive real solutions to these universal problems Unfortunately, the solutions seemed geared almost entirely towards big complex organizations I kept thinking that my father in law who is an engineer for a large company might enjoy it, or it would be good for government organizations, b...

    2.5 5 Not because the book is about simplicity should the book itself feel so Simple It has some good thoughts and resources but it feels like another book that should ve been a group of blog posts.

    The concepts shared are great I feel like I had to swim an ocean to get to the meat of the book I love business books, self help books, non fiction and historical books this one was an absolute CHORE to finish.

  9. says:

    Great emphasis on simplicity and with good tips I could change few habits of my own after reading the book and the results are great.

    Very helpful in contexts than business.
