How to organise your company for effectiveness and productivity2 min read

Natalie Nagele.001

On this week’s episode of the SaaS Revolution Show, we talk with Natalie Nagele, Co-founder and CEO of Wildbit about how she and her co-founder and husband, Chris Nagele have run the company for the past nearly 19 years and have created both an effective and calm environment.

During those 19 years, Natalie and Chris have built a lot of products and have shut down many of them. The ones that have stood the test of time have often been SaaS. Currently the company maintains Postmark, Beanstalk and Conveyor. Wildbit currently employs 30 people who are spread between 6 countries.

Natalie’s main goal throughout all this time has been to keep the company a sane place to work. She has never taken VC funding and has never imposed high growth, or unsustainable goals for the company. At the start of the year, however, Natalie and Chris introduced The Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS) to help the company become more effective and productive. So far the experience has been great and they are already seeing great results. It has made them far more effective and aligned, especially as they operate a four day work week.

At SaaStock we also implemented EOS at the start of the year, so this is as much a rundown of how it works as it is an exchange of notes and advice on how to make it better. Listen on to hear:

  • How Natalie has assured the company has been around for nearly 19 years
  • How they rolled out EOS
  • One area in which EOS has already had a massive impact in Wildbit

Natalie is one of many diverse voices we will hear from at SaaStock in Dublin this October. While we will have plenty of stories of high growth and stellar metrics, we will also feature the other, equally as effective ways do SaaS – by growing slowly and sustainably. Joining her on 5 separate tracks will be 150 speakers representing a variety of company stages and verticals. Grab a ticket now at the best possible price.

How to Price SaaS

How to Price SaaS with Paul Lynch, Chargify

You don’t want anything getting in the way of attracting new customers, especially not price. Many businesses focus a lot of their time, resources and efforts around their marketing funnel, around their sales funnel, around their general organisational charts. Pricing, specifically to win within SaaS, is under-invested. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to pricing, but there…
