Answering the corporate dilemma of balancing customer and business needs requires three things:
- Figuring out the actual cost of complexity—down to the lowest level of detail for every product, every customer, and every order.
- Understanding the root causes of excessive complexity so that something can be done about it.
- Simulating what will happen when action is taken.
Get one of them wrong, and profits can take a hit.
