EFFICIENCY, WHICH IS DOING THINGS RIGHT, IS IRRELEVANT UNTIL YOU WORK ON THE RIGHT THINGS
Peter Drucker (1909-2005)

The book

Learning how to tame the Complexity Monster

IT projects are notorious for their high fail rate. In more than half of all cases they are over time, over budget and underperforming.

The Paperclip Mindset takes a refreshing approach to solving this problem: radical simplification.

We tend to think we need to work harder, spend more time and money in order to make IT projects work.

But what if the opposite is true? What if we could achieve much more by doing less?

The Paperclip Mindset explains how you can foster simplicity and come to huge gains in time, money and effort.
