Dickerson’s management moment: KISS — Keep It Simple, Stupid

Power Point: It is a simple task to make things complex, but a complex task to make them simple.
ó Meyer’s Law
Power Thought: Simplicity is one of the virtues that I appreciate more than most. Much time and resources are wasted because of a poor leader who got mired down in making the simple complex. Free your people from the tyranny of urgent and turn your team loose to do what they do best. Keep it simple and everyone’s happy.
ó Doug DickersonPower Surge: Everything should be make as simple as possible, but not one bit simpler.
