Want to know the secrets to running a successful business? Business Review talked to the top managers who head up 20 of the most important organizations in their sectors to get the lowdown on the main lessons they have learned since taking the helm.

Here is a lesson from Daniel Dines, CEO, UiPath:

“A very important lesson that I’ve learned – and I did that the hard way – is that you need to know a subject very, very deeply in order to then be able to build a simple solution. If you don’t understand all the details, all the kind of branches of a particular solution, you will end up building something very simplistic. Simplistic is very easy. To build something simple, on the other hand, is very difficult. That is why we need to spend 10 hours a day simply thinking about all the implications of a product.”
