Work Smarter in a World of Infinite Choices.
This is the age of information overload. In a wold where people's time and attention are scarce, the only way to stay sane and actually get any work done is to simplify - to focus on what matters most and not waste your time on the rest.
Businesses worldwide are rushing to transform themselves into knowledge-based competitors in the information age. But the greatest challenge that people and companies face is not competition, the marketplace, or any external force; it is from within the organisation. Companies and individuals have to learn how to manage the ever-increasing complexity that characterises work - or someone else is going to get there first.
In 'Simplicity' Bill Jensen offers a highly engaging and pragmatic approach to competing in the fast-paced information age by being disciplined about how you make sense of everything around you. Drawing on a ground-breaking study of over 2,500 people in 460 companies, Jensen presents new tools and strategies for applying common sense and critical thinking to any business situation - from running more effective meetings to leading large-scale change programmes. Where technology, information science and management theory meet, Jensen offers a vision of how work and organisation can be structured in ways that create knowledge but not information overload.
'Simplicity' is about working smarter, not harder. It gives you the power to create more flexible and productive organisations, more compelling experiences for colleagues and customers, and more fulfilling work for everyone.
