As time passes by we notice that
- The Software bloats up
- The Team bloats up
- The Process bloats up
- The planning phases bloat up
- The Documents and artifacts bloat up
- Bugs bloat up
- Team members bloat up
- The organization bloats
- and so on….
What we need is some jigging to shake off all those extra fat. Unfortunately organizations adopt the “more the merrier” philosophy instead of “less is more” or “less is beautiful” philosophy. Why not embrace simplicity?
Simplicity is defined as “the art of maximizing work undone”.
