Simplicity is a hard thing. As the legendary Jony Ive, Apple's former Chief Design Officer, once said, the challenge is "to solve incredibly complex problems and make their resolution appear inevitable and incredibly simple".

Today, as technology becomes more complex than we can process, how do we hold on to that precious thread of simplicity? How do we design products and systems that are human-centred? How do we put innovation back in our own hands, even as we drive radical digital transformation?

The Simplicity Playbook for Innovators shows the way. It introduces five strategic shifts that will transform the way you look at your business - from customer research to product/service development. In each strategic shift, you will find a wealth of practical tools that have been applied and tested, particularly in legacy companies dealing with complex processes and systems.

When we focus on simplicity instead of innovation-for-the-sake-of-innovation, customers love the experience. With this illuminating step-by-step guide, you will rediscover how to focus on what really matters for your business, and learn the methods to create experiences that win customers' hearts.

Jin Kang Moller is a simplicity guru. She got me started on my simplicity journey, and it changed the trajectory of my career significantly. I came to realise, from Jin's teachings and modelling, that simplicity is the heart, mind and soul of good experience. In this book, Jin transcends theory, giving the reader practical guidance on making complex customer experiences and communications more simple. I highly recommend the book for any business leader who recognises the obvious - simpler is better - and needs a playbook for achieving that noble goal.

- Mark McCormick, SVP, Strategic Design, Innovation Group, Wells Fargo

In The Simplicity Playbook for Innovators, Jin Kang Moller breaks down innovation into simple, easy-to-understand concepts and shows how less is more when creating something new. This book is especially relevant in today's post-Covid-19 world, where we need to be agile and creative in coping with the many unprecedented challenges.
