There is a conflict in many organizations today. Many leaders are acutely aware of the complexity within their organizations and it makes them uncomfortable. Therefore, they strive to simplify. Many leaders look to refine processes. They look for straightforward systems and uncomplicated tools. They seek the least common denominator.
