Capacity for Complexity

Families that move into a house with ample space will find ways to use that space.  That’s basic economics.  An abundant resource will be used until it becomes scarce.

Companies that supply products such as shelves, billiard tables and home theater seating are appreciative of that principle.

That principle applies with an organization’s capacity for complexity.  If an organization has plenty of people, it will figure out how to keep them all busy, regardless of whether their activities add value or not.

 Deadwood should be appreciative of that principle.
