Ockham’s Razor (also known as the “Law of Parsimony”) is a principle that states that the simplest solution to a problem, not the most complicated, is always best. Examples:
  • Before investing countless staff hours toward improving your Web site, meet with your Web designer to explore immediate fixes.

  • Before spending big bucks on market research, ask four or five customers how you could make them happier.
Lesson: Start simple, then get more complex. Ockham’s Razor can trim time and cost from your bottom line.
