    Yves Morieux:  As work gets more complex, 6 rules to simplify (12:01)  |  TED         10/00/2013

    warren of interdependencies. In this energetic talk, Morieux offers six rules for "smart
    simplicity." (Rule One: Understand what your colleagues actually do)

    about solving brand-new problems every day, flexibly and collaboratively. But as 
Yves
    
Morieux shows in this insightful talk, too often, an overload of rules, processes and
    metrics keeps us from doing our best work together. Meet the new frontier of
    productivity: cooperation.
