What is the Simpliverse?

The Simpliverse is a conceptual, parallel reality in the realm of product management. It represents an idealized world where product development is exceptionally straightforward and devoid of the complexities typically encountered in real-world scenarios. The term was coined to highlight the contrast between the often oversimplified advice given by those who may not fully appreciate the intricacies of product development and the nuanced reality faced by product managers and development teams.

People who live in the Simpliverse are quite comfortable making broad pronouncements and generalization. They give guidance as if it applied to all product development teams, regardless of size, company lifecycle stage, product lifecycle stage, market type served, e.g., B2B/B2C.

Inhabitants of the real world should be very careful applying advice from Simpliverse "experts".
