Why We're Simplifying the Hard Work of Building Great Organizations
Building a great organization is an ambitious, often daunting task. It involves navigating complexities, managing diverse teams, and aligning various processes toward a unified goal. At Ninety, we understand the challenges Founders/CEOs face in this journey. This understanding drives our commitment to simplifying the hard work of building a great organization.
The Complexity of Organizational Growth
The growth of an organization is anything but linear. It involves layers of strategy, people management, operational efficiency, and constant adaptation to market changes. This complexity arises from the very nature of growth, which is organic, multifaceted, and often unpredictable. Leaders must deal with evolving customer needs, technological advancements, regulatory landscapes, and the ever-changing global economy.
The challenge is compounded for small and midsize businesses that typically lack the resources of larger corporations. These organizations need to be agile and efficient, making the most of limited resources while ensuring they remain on a path of sustainable growth.
The Need for Simplification
In this environment, simplification becomes not just a preference but a necessity. Simplification here does not mean taking shortcuts or diminishing the quality of work. Instead, it's about streamlining processes, clarifying objectives, and eliminating unnecessary complexities that can distract from the organization's core focus.
Simplification helps in several ways:
- Clarity of Vision: A simplified approach helps maintain focus on the organization's goals, preventing the diversion of resources into less important tasks.
- Efficiency in Operations: Streamlined processes reduce waste, save time, and enhance productivity.
- Better Meetings: Run efficient, productive meetings focused on making real progress, staying aligned, and consistently solving problems.
- Better Decision-Making: When systems are simplified, decision-making becomes faster and more accurate as leaders have a clearer picture of their situation.
- Increased Flexibility: Simplified structures are more adaptable to change, which is crucial in a dynamic business environment.
- Team Member Engagement and Satisfaction: A clear, straightforward work environment with a team member feedback system enhances team member morale and reduces burnout.

The Impact of Simplification on Organizational Success
The benefits of simplification are profound. Organizations that embrace this principle are better positioned to navigate the complexities of the business world. They are more resilient in the face of challenges and more agile in capitalizing on opportunities.
Simplification also has a direct impact on the bottom line. Efficient processes mean lower operational costs and higher productivity. Clear communication and streamlined decision-making processes lead to faster execution of strategies, giving companies a competitive edge.
The Human Aspect of Simplification
Beyond the operational benefits, simplification significantly impacts the people within the organization. A simplified work environment reduces stress and confusion, increasing team member satisfaction and retention. When team members are clear about their roles, objectives, and the processes they need to engage with, they are more likely to be engaged, motivated, and productive.
Embracing Simplification as a Culture
At Ninety, we believe that simplification should be more than just a focus; it should be a part of the organizational culture. This means consistently seeking ways to make processes more efficient, communication clearer, and decision-making more straightforward. It involves empowering team members with tools and resources that help them focus on their core responsibilities.
