The Myth of Simplicity

In an effort to simplify by creating a one-stop-shop, we create a myth of simplicity. Jamming all of what we do into one spot hides the complexity inside of it. If a team does too many things and wants to simplify, it should consider actually reducing what it does instead the ways it attempts to meet those needs. If a team fails to do this, they create the myth of simplicity by complicating the one thing it says they exist for. The answer is to simplify to a number of choices that can effectively do what they are designed for instead of a one-stop-shop. Everything cannot be an effective Swiss Army knife.
