The complexity trap, unfortunately, is inevitable. As your business processes grow, regulations, meetings, and metrics increase. Workers don’t get promoted for doing less in their organisations, they get promoted for doing more. If your company operates with complexity, it cannot operate with speed. All you need to do is look at the success of companies like Uber (simplified rides), AirBnB (simplified hotels), and Netflix (simplified media streaming), and compare them to all the complex and slower to change businesses they left in their wake: taxis, hotels, and movie rental shops. And, it is plain as day.
Why simple wins?
The simplification of how we think and operate – on an organisational and individual level – offers a solution to this modern predicament. We know from experience that if companies foster flatter organisational structures, and flexible working environments, where people are empowered to control their own schedules, they are:
- Higher rates of people satisfaction and retention
- Enhanced agility and efficiency
- Higher revenue and profit from heightened improvements in productivity, engagement
- Reduced costs from heightened productivity and less absenteeism
We partner with leaders to identify challenges and implement positive change in their workplaces. We do this by simplifying complex processes, actioning sustainable solutions and embedding a culture that champions mindful practices.
So where did ‘Zymplify’ come from? It is a synergy of Zen and simplification – the two pillars that govern our change making, our philosophy and methodology. Zen: a mindset of clarity, peace and total focus. A company culture championing Zen-based principles – such as mindfulness and meditation – increases employee engagement, productivity and wellbeing. And, simplify: the distilling and streamlining of processes. Simplified structures and functions allow a business to be efficient and agile in a fast-paced, competitive marketplace. Simples.
