I’ve got a new book to recommend to the IT folks out there. It is called Insanely Simple by Ken Segall. It goes along perfectly with my earlier post about the need to simplify things. This is a telling of how Steve Jobs was fanatically focused on the simplest possible solutions at Apple. While I don’t want to bow down to Steve, I do think that there are some excellent principles in this book that apply to IT and to company processes and decisions.
Have small teams? Simple documentation and instructions? Simple packaging? Refuse to accept no as an answer? All relate to IT.
The book is recommended. I’ll be adding it to the recommended book tab. And I’m handing out copies of this book at work.
