“That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: you have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.” – Steve Jobs
The Simplicity Toolkit provides instructions on how to use the Simplicity Scan framework and Simplicity Starter and Sprint processes. The purpose of the Scan and Sprint is to enable business leaders to simplify their thinking to create momentum towards achieving their goals. The framework and process are based on various practices and lessons from people successfully building and growing businesses around the world.
“Make everything as simple as possible, and no simpler.”– Albert Einstein
The Simplicity Scan is a one-page business alignment framework that simplifies your thinking about how your business is designed and is the foundation of the Ebullient.com method. This practical wisdom has been captured through years of experience and observing the results of hundreds of businesses all over the world.
“Simplicity before understanding is simplistic; simplicity after understanding is simple.” – Edward de Bono

These are confusing times. If you want to get rid of the clutter and focus on what will really help you to accelerate your business have a look at the ebullient canvas as we did for two businesses. Chris, with whom we have worked before, has guided us through the process and helped us to focus on what will really push us forward. The outcome: simplicity of strategy and clarity of execution. If you want a few days of fun and innovation, Chris is your guy!
Frequently reflecting on your company is a must for every entrepreneur, but often falls short due to everyday challenges. Working with the simple business canvas of ebullient was an easy entrance to straighten and refresh my thoughts on my changing business environment. It is both a simple and a confronting process, though insightful and powerful. I’m convinced that it will accelerate your business as well. You will love the way Chris leads you through the process. He has the ability to ask the right questions at the right time and provides a trusted and fun atmosphere to get the best output for you, your team and your customers.
I can highly recommend trying out the simple business canvas. Not only does it help you as an entrepreneur to ask yourself the right questions on what you’d like to achieve, but also it facilitates you to make the connection to how and with whom you’d like to achieve this for your business. I does it with utmost simplicity and it does not take a lot of your time. It does focuses on the key topics you always need to take into account and balance when starting, growing or improving your organisation (big and small). In this way it will support and accelerate your own thought and decision making process.
Using the simple business canvas was simple, quick and insightful. Chris guided us carefully to build it up in steps and iterate so that the final version feels robust. It makes a coherent, focused plan to achieve strategic aims faster while taking account of the realities on the ground. Chris has a talent for fostering teamwork while clearly identifying pain points and addressing them; and creates a fun atmosphere to accomplish work.
I was skeptical at first, being a serial entrepreneur with four companies under my belt. However, the Ebullient experience was super helpful as I pushed through a pivot in our strategy. Working with Ebullient felt like a conversation to me. I’d answer someone else’s questions, and that would give me new ideas (super quickly) to ponder. It felt much faster and more certain than just thinking through things alone. If you need to change directions (or set your first direction), I recommend Ebullient!
“What would this look like if it were easy?” – Tim Ferriss
The Business Simplicity Podcast is the delightfully simple podcast where leaders share their most successful strategies and the failures that inspired them so business owners and managers can avoid the suffering and reap the benefits.
The conversation style episodes are loosely based on the Simplicity Scan framework. Guests are executives and entrepreneurs from all walks of life. We celebrate the people who are purposefully creating value for their customers and who appreciate the power of simplicity.
“Now, more than ever, businesses of all sizes need to simplify their thinking and strategies in order to accelerate their decision making and performance” – Chris Parker
