The tendency is to think of problems as simple but the solutions as complex. By making problems too simple, we may miss finding the real solution. By making the solution too complex, we may miss the opportunity to solve it.
The more complex the solution, the more opportunity for failure. As automobiles have gotten more complex, for example, there’s more opportunity for something to break down or not work properly. And, because they are more complex, it requires the so called expert, and generally a lot more money to repair. For an organization trying to build a program to address a certain problem or meet a certain need, the more complex the program, the greater the possibility something is not going to work right.
Take Away: The more complex the solution, the more opportunity for failure.
