Hack away at the unessential

It’s not the daily increase but daily decrease. Hack away at the unessential.”
Bruce Lee.

Whether you’re a vendor or a customer, there is a tendency to get lost in the complexity of your OSS. Just as Bruce Lee did with his training, there is complexity waiting to be hacked away from most OSS.

There are seven key areas where simplicity can be achieved:

  1. Simplified processes that focus on doing the 80% of activities as efficiently as possible
  2. Simplified user experience through the minimisation of referential data
  3. Identification of user requirements to the essential elements only
  4. Reduction in interfaces to the essential data sets only
  5. Storing only the data that is relevant to the business
  6. Simplicity and clarity of training of users to use the most optimised techniques
  7. Ongoing benchmarking of users to identify the most efficient techniques
