  8. 8. Simplicity principles • Simplicity is about removing everything that can complicate the process • One designers complexity is another's completeness • Two ways of doing the same thing suggest poor design • Simplicity doesn’t mean simple minded: something that’s well designed accommodates the total problem space consistency is a virtue and leads to elegance (link) Occam's razor: a scientific and philosophic rule that entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily which is interpreted as requiring that the simplest of competing theories be preferred to the more complex or that explanations of unknown phenomena be sought first in terms of known quantities
  9. 9. De Bono’s simplicity Simplicity Principles 1. You need to put a high value on simplicity. To get simplicity you have to want to get it. To want to get simplicity you have to put a high value on simplicity 2. You must be determined to seek simplicity People quite like simplicity if it does not cost anything but are usually unwilling to invest resources in making something more simple. 3. You need to understand the matter very well. If you do not seek to understand a situation or process, your efforts will be ’simplistic’ rather than simple. Simplicity before understanding is worthless. 4. You need to design alternatives. It is not a matter of designing the ‘one right way’. It is more a matter of designing alternatives and possibilities, and then selecting one of them. 5. You need to challenge and discard existing elements. Everything needs to justify its continued existence. If you wish to retain something for the sake of tradition let that be a conscious decision. 6. You need to be prepared to start over again. In the search for Simplicity, modify if you can - start afresh if you cannot. 7. You need to use concepts. Concepts are the human mind’s way of simplifying the world around. Warning: If you do not use concepts, then you are working with detail. You may need to break things down into smaller units. The organization of a smaller unit is obviously simpler than the organisation of a large unit. The smaller units are themselves organised to serve the larger purpose. 8. You need to be prepared to trade off other values for simplicity. A system that seeks to be totally comprehensive may be very complex. 9. You may need to trade off that comprehensiveness for simplicity. 10. You need to know for whose sake the simplicity is being designed. A shift of complexity may mean that a system is made easier for the customer but much more complicated for the operator.
