Innovation's Biggest Paradox

From FastCompany's recent article, "The Beauty of Simplicity":

"It is innovation's biggest paradox: We demand more and more from the stuff in our lives--more features, more function, more power--and yet we also increasingly demand that it be easy to use. And, in an Escher-like twist, the technology that's simplest to use is also, often, the most difficult to create. " quote Albert Einstein:

"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler."

BOTTOMLINE: Simplicity is both sacred and central to a organization's competitive advantage. And no doubt about it, the market for simplicity is complex. Start by simplifying your company. "Less isn't more; just enough is more."
