Simplify : How the Best Businesses in the World Succeed Paperback


For the past 40 years Richard Koch has wanted to uncover the simple, elemental, elegant and parsimonious principles that are needed to create great new businesses.

To qualify, a principle must be so overwhelmingly powerful that anyone can reliably use it towards extraordinary results.

Is there any principle that can tell you how to do that consistently and with a high chance of success?

Working with venture capitalist Greg Lockwood, his co-author on SUPERCONNECT, and supported by research from the elite firm of OC&C Strategy Consultants, Koch has the answer.The principle Koch and Lockwood have discovered behind extraordinarily successful businesses is simplifying.

Some simplify on price - take Ryanair's budget flights which still take you from A to B, but so cheaply that nearly everyone can afford them, multiplying the size of their market - and some simplify on proposition, such as Apple's decision to cut down on the number of their product lines and focus on perfecting only a few devices.With case studies of famous companies in all different industries from finance to fast food, the authors show how anyone can analyse their business's potential to become a simplifier, and which route they should take to maximise the impact.
