Task Simplification is a managerial conception which addresses any approach enabling performers to work at their tasks with fewer resources required (weather it is information, effort, knowledge, money, time, etc). Task simplification is usually gained as a result of technological progress that enables improvement of conventional business processes to allow people working easier – with less energy or other productive resource consumed. This term can be explained in the following ways:
- Task simplification is an effort that lowers the skill level required of a person performing a task: due to an improved technology or a better method the risk for mistakes minimizes, while level of efforts and amount of time required to complete this task shorten.
- Task simplification is a process of dividing the tasks and activities into smaller steps which are elaborated and explained into simpler terms, so these tasks can be accomplished much easier (especially by those who has a lack of experience), as the work is expounded as determined and doable instructions (let’s say a step-by-step checklist).
