EOS® = Entrepreneurial Operating System®
A practical, real-world approach to improving your business
EOS is a complete business operating system for entrepreneurs and their leadership teams. It was designed by an entrepreneur, Gino Wickman, who has devoted his life to understanding the science of business and working with other entrepreneurs to help them achieve success. The power of EOS is that it is real world, simple and practical, with field-tested tools that really work.
On average, leaders tend to grapple with about 136 issues simultaneously, so it can be a daunting task to take the time needed to implement an operating system. It is important to remember, though, that "as goes the leadership team so goes the rest of the organization." So, if you don’t have a focused plan, it is unlikely that your company will have the focus and drive to ultimately achieve the success you desire.
Collectively, EOS implementers, such as myself, have delivered over 27,265 full-day sessions to leadership teams from over 4,200 companies. We focus on:
The EOS Model™ provides a visual illustration of the Six Key Components™ of any business that must be managed and strengthened to become a great business. This model applies to large and small businesses alike, in any industry.
Key Component 1: Vision
Strengthening this component means getting everyone in the organization 100% on the same page with where you’re going and how you’re going to get there.
Key Component 2: People
Surround yourself with great people, top to bottom, because you can’t achieve a great vision without great people.
Key Component 3: Data
Cut through all the feelings, opinions and egos and boil your organization down to a handful of objective numbers that provide you a fact-based picture of your business.
Key Component 4: Issues
Strengthening this component means becoming great at solving problems at all levels of the organization – setting them up, knocking them down and making them go away forever.
Key Component 5: Process
The secret ingredient in your organization. This means “systemizing” your business by identifying and documenting the core processes that define your way of running your business – getting everyone on the same page with what the essential procedural steps are in your core processes and then getting everyone to follow them so you create consistency and scalability in your organization.
Key Component 6: Traction®
This component brings discipline and accountability into the organization, helping you to become great at execution so you can make the vision a reality.
