April 23, 2023

You may have come across the concept of Scaling Up, a proven framework for business expansion, based on the best-selling book by Verne Harnish. This methodology aligns your vision, strategy, execution, and cash flow, enabling you to reach your goals with less drama and more enjoyment. But the question that arises is, how can you effectively implement Scaling Up in your organization? How can you monitor your progress, measure your results, and ensure your team remains engaged and accountable? How can you transform Scaling Up from a mere concept into a daily habit that drives your business growth?

Enter Ninety.IO, a revolutionary cloud-based software platform designed to help you run your business on the principles of Scaling Up. This platform is not just a tool, but a comprehensive solution that integrates all the resources you need to apply the Scaling Up methodology effectively. From the One-Page Strategic Plan to the Rockefeller Habits Checklist, from Quarterly and Annual Planning sessions to a plethora of other tools and templates, Ninety.IO has everything you need to scale your business successfully.

Here are six of my favorite features that Ninety.io offers and how they can benefit your business.

Accountability Charts (FACe): This feature helps you define and visualize the roles and responsibilities of each person in your organization. You can create an organizational chart that shows who reports to whom, what their core functions are, and what their key performance indicators (KPIs) are. You can also use this feature to identify gaps or overlaps in your structure and make adjustments as needed.

Meeting and Issues Management (Meeting Cadence): This feature helps you run effective and productive meetings using the Weekly Meeting™ agenda, a proven format for conducting weekly meetings that cover all the essential aspects of your business. You can create agendas, record notes, track issues, assign action items, and rate your meetings. You can also use this feature to manage issues that arise in your business and resolve them using the issueing process.

Scorecards: This feature helps you measure and monitor the performance of your business using key metrics that align with your vision and goals. You can create scorecards that show how your business is doing on a weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annual basis. You can also compare your actual results with your targets and identify trends and patterns.

To-Dos & Rocks: This feature helps you manage your personal and professional goals using the Rocks system, a method for setting and achieving 90-day goals that are aligned with your vision and values such as your One-Page Strategic Plan (OPSP). You can create rocks that represent your most important priorities for the quarter and break them down into smaller tasks. You can also track your progress and completion rate.

Process (PACe): This feature helps you document and standardize the core processes of your business using PACe, a method for creating simple and clear process maps that show who does what, when, where, why, and how. You can use this feature to create process documents for each of the core elements of your business. 

OPSP: This feature helps you clarify and communicate the vision of your business using the One-Page Strategic Plan (OPSP), a method for creating a two-page document that summarizes your core values, core focus, 10-year target, marketing strategy, 3yr and 5 yr goals, one-year plan, quarterly rocks, and issues list. You can use this feature to create and update your OPSP™ and share it with your team members.

With Ninety.IO, you can do more than just plan; you can execute. You can create and communicate your vision, mission, values, and goals with your team, fostering a culture of transparency and alignment. You can define and execute your strategic priorities, key performance indicators, and action items, ensuring that every member of your team is working towards the same objectives. You can monitor and improve your team's performance, alignment, and engagement, creating a high-performing culture that drives business growth.

But Ninety.IO is not just about achieving goals but celebrating successes and learning from challenges. The platform allows you to celebrate wins, learn from challenges, and continuously improve your operations.

I deeply believe entrepreneurs are the best equipped to be the vehicle for meaningful change, and in the decade ahead, we'll see a substantial shift in how business is done. We'll move to a model where company purpose, impact, curiosity, and team health will be differentiators in overall business success. As Simon Sinek has pointed out, the finite games are the legacy of the past; we're moving to an infinite game.
