Praveen's Strategic Simplicity® Framework

My Strategic Simplicity® framework helps leaders dramatically improve their businesses.

Here are the components:

1. Change Simplicity -  Do you break down projects into micro-projects that you can iterate through?

2. Market Simplicity - What big idea or theme do you want your product or service known for? Do you minimize the number of non strategic goals pursued?

3. Decision Simplicity - How easy is it for prospects to decide and evaluate among your offerings?  Is it easy for them to see the value of your products compared to those of competitors?  Does your product portfolio overlap and cause confusion?

4. User Simplicity  - Once a prospect decides to become a customer, how easy is it for them to buy, use your product, and take advantage of sales and servicing?

5. Operational Simplicity - How simple and streamlined are your internal processes?  Consider your employees to be (internal) customers: do you provide them with user simplicity to do their jobs?
