WHY SIMPLE WINS by Lisa Bodell

Complexity is killing companies’ ability to innovate and adapt, and simplicity is fast becoming the competitive advantage of our time. WHY SIMPLE WINS enables leaders and teams to move beyond the frustration and futility of unproductive work to create a corporate culture when valuable, essential work is the norm. By learning how to eliminate redundancies, communicate with clarity, and make simplification a habit, companies can begin to recognize which activities are time-sucks and which create lasting value. Through Lisa Bodell’s latest book, we learn how to eliminate low-value work so we can feel less overwhelmed and more focused on work that actually matters.


 

SIMPLIFICATION Toolkit by Lisa Bodell

This toolkit is designed with 13 tools to enable leaders and teams to move beyond the cycle of busywork and toward a culture where valuable, essential work is the norm. By learning how to eliminate redundancies, communicate with clarity, and make simplification a habit, we can recognize which activities are time-sucks and which create lasting value. Eliminating low-value work translates into individuals who feel less overwhelmed, more empowered, and able to spend each day doing things that matter.


 

KILL THE COMPANY by Lisa Bodell

It was named Best Business Book of the Year by Booz & Co. because it doesn’t act like the other books on the shelf. It’s a compelling case for identifying how a rival or disruptor could destroy your company…and your formula to prevent it from happening.

Process and procedure is leaving employees with zero time for innovative thinking or valuable work. Stuck in the land of status quo, we’ve forgotten how to think. This perfect storm has led to the rise of two evils: complexity and complacency. Lisa Bodell’s book is a call to arms: to start a revolution in how we think and work. Instead of more one-size-fits-all change initiatives forced upon employees, we need to embrace small changes that create ripple effects throughout the organization. If we want people to approach change differently, we have to change our approach. KILL THE COMPANY is a revolution, awakening our ability to think, innovate, and grow.
