Innovation and Simplicity Go Hand in Hand

Many times companies try to hard to instill complex and intricate designs and features in order to unlock innovation. This post on Endless Innovation shows us that companies like Apple and Google have innovated time and time again my embracing principles of simplicity.

I found this particular example from Maeda’s book The Laws of Simplicity interesting. There is a tradition in Japanese culinary called omakase where sushi chefs choose every element of the meal for guests. Even though not directly related to Fortune 500 companies organizations can still learn something from this example. Does your company practice any laws of simplicity?
