How can teams be as smart as the bees

  1. Simple principles make decisions easier and better.
    People know the why for every action; there are fewer data points to collect and the rules are easier to remember. Focusing on engagement helped the Facebook startup team make quick decisions and succeed where other social networks failed.
  2. Simple principles foster flexibility and innovation.
    When a team knows the goal, they can be creative about how they get there. It makes space for the most effective (and efficient) solution. It also allows for innovation. Twitter is probably one of the best examples of a company’s product with simple rules. Be nice and communicate with each other in 140 characters! The flexibility allowed for the addition of the #tag to the creation of several Twitter clones.
  3. Lower organizational stress.
    Teams with simple principles (a clear articulated purpose) have more success with lower churn. Think Microsoft during its heydays of a computer on every desk in every home.
