Complex Organizations Have Complex Processes

The problem is the complexity of the organizations in which these processes are carried out. We must remember: a) the Theory on Bounded Rationality in organizations (Simon 1955); b) the Contingency Theory (Woodward 1965); c) the Theory of Transactions (Williamson 1975); d) the Theory of Evolution (Thom 1972; Rullani 1984).
All these theories suggest that the complexity of organizations coincides with the complexity of the processes.

No Direct Correlation

I am wary of a direct correlation between a complex organisation out of necessity or default having complex processes as in my experience, this is not always the case.
I would argue this depends on the organisation in question.
The objective of having effective processes is to identify and adopt good practice and where efficiency savings may be found (lean).
Just a thought, do unduly complex processes reflect inefficient management?
