Learn the Six Key Components

The EOS MODEL

The EOS Model™ provides a visual illustration of the Six Key Components™ of any business that must be managed and strengthened to be a great business. This model applies to big and small businesses alike, in any industry.

The Six Key Components of Any Business

Vision. Strengthening this component means getting everyone in the organization 100 percent on the same page with where you’re going and how you’re going to get there.
 
People. Simply put, we can’t do it without great people.  This means surrounding yourself with great people, top to bottom, because you can’t achieve a great vision without a great team.
 
Data. This means cutting through all the feelings, personalities, opinions and egos and boiling your organization down to a handful of objective numbers that give you an absolute pulse on where things are.
 

With the Vision, People, and Data Components strong, you start to create a lucid, transparent, open and honest organization where everything becomes more visible and you start to “smoke out all the issues,” which leads to…

Issues. Strengthening this component means becoming great at solving problems throughout the organization – setting them up, knocking them down and making them go away forever.
 
Process. This is the secret ingredient in your organization. This means “systemizing” your business by identifying and documenting the core processes that define the way to run your business. You’ll need to get everyone on the same page with what the essential procedural steps are, and then get everyone to follow them to create consistency and scalability in your organization.
 
Traction®. This means bringing discipline and accountability into the organization – becoming great at execution – taking the vision down to the ground and making it real.
To the degree you focus on strengthening these Six Components as leaders and managers, everything will fall into place. That will move your business into the top 5 percent.

The EOS ToolboxTM

eos-toolbox

Leadership teams in entrepreneurial companies need to manage efficiently and effectively. There’s no time to waste managing egos or dealing with office politics.

The EOS Toolbox is a complete set of tools addressing and strengthening all Six Key Components™ of any business. These management tools for business leaders are designed to be easy to learn and use, because complexity reduces effectiveness.

Every tool in the EOS Toolbox has been proven time and time again in the real world – the tools work!

The EOS Process®

The EOS Process provides a proven way to put all the pieces together, incorporating each of the EOS® Tools in the right order to best strengthen each key component of your business.

Getting Started

Select an Implementer. To begin, you will need to select someone to play the essential role of “EOS Implementer” and guide your leadership team through the process. This can be a person on your leadership team or a Professional Implementer outside the company. We recommend using a Professional or Certified EOS Implementer for the best experience and results.
 
The 90 Minute Meeting. Led by a Certified or Professional Implementer, the 90 Minute Meeting introduces your leadership team to EOS®, getting everyone on the same page to decide if you want to use the system and tools to strengthen your company.
 

Getting Focused and Clarifying Vision

The Focus Day™. A day to give your leadership team tools to clarify who’s responsible for what, set priorities, improve communication, resolve issues and track critical numbers.
Your leadership team then uses their new tools for the next 30 days to experience real improvement.
 
Vision Building™ Day 1. Another day with your leadership team that starts by reviewing and sharpening the Focus Day tools. You will then begin to use the Vision/Traction Organizer™ (V/TO) tool to clarify your vision, starting with who you are, why you exist, what you do and where you are going. You will also get a great tool for reviewing your people.
Your team again uses the tools for the next 30 days to experience more improvement. This is a spaced-learning approach which has proven to be most effective for quickly gaining proficiency with the tools.
 
Vision Building Day 2.  Another day with the leadership team to master the Focus Day tools and continue using the V/TO tool to complete your vision, clarify your Marketing Strategy, 3-Year Picture™, 1-Year Plan and priorities for the next 90 days. With your leaders now focused and all on the same page, you’ll use the tools for the next 90 days to execute your plan and experience more improvement.
 

Achieving Traction

Quarterly Sessions. A day with your leadership team every 90 days to evaluate their performance, refocus, set priorities for the next 90 days and resolve any issues that might impede progress.  Your team experiences measurable growth and improvement every 90 days – Traction®.
 
Annual Sessions. Two days with your leadership team each year to work on team health and update the vision and plan for the next year and next quarter.
 

The Result

A healthy, focused leadership team and organization that makes continual progress towards achieving everything in their vision.

Gather Momentum

Focus Day

The Focus Day™

We begin implementing EOS with the Focus Day™ and start with “Traction” before “Vision”.  It is fun to formulate vision and stay at a high level, but the real work is in the execution of the basics.  The Focus Day includes a discussion of why businesses get stuck and how they can get unstuck (Hitting the Ceiling), it moves into creating organizational clarity (Accountability Chart™), prioritizing the most important projects (Rock Setting), learning how to run a disciplined Level 10 Meeting™ (for accountability and solving issues) and creating a rudimentary Scorecard.  The Focus Day creates the in-the-trenches EOS execution experience for your team, before elevating them to work on Vision.

The Focus Day nudges team members to take ownership of responsibilities, committing to forward looking projects, learning to hold themselves and each other more accountable and focusing on hitting key numbers.  It gives everyone a taste of the workload and the process, providing information and reality before starting Vision Building™, approximately 30 days later.

Vision Building

Vision Building™ Day 1 and 2

Each of Vision Building Day 1 and 2 will be 30% about reviewing the Focus Day tools, to make sure you got them right.  In most cases, the Accountability Chart will need fine-tuning, the Level 10 meeting may feel awkward (discipline, accountability, process, quality of issues, etc.) and the Scorecard numbers may not be available, or calibrated properly, fluctuating too much, etc.  These are normal challenges and our goal is to fix them before the leadership team rolls out the EOS process to your whole organization after Vision Building Day 2.  We also build out the Vision/Traction Organizer, V/TO™, also called the “2-page business plan” during the Vision Building phase of the implementation. We review the first set of Rocks on Vision Day 2 and set new, better Rocks for the next 90 days.

With your leaders now focused and all on the same page, you’ll use the tools for the next 90 days to execute your plan and experience more improvement.

Achieve Traction

Quarterly Sessions

Quarterly Sessions

After the 3-day initial roll out, we get into a quarterly rhythm.  Your organization goes off to execute for 90 days and we get together to take stock, refresh and set new priorities.  It is human nature to lose focus after about 90 days and the EOS process is designed to not allow that and to bring the team back every quarter, so that you are always making progress towards the long term goals of your company.  This will create good execution habits and consistency, the mother of success and profitability.

Your team experiences measurable growth and improvement every 90 days – Traction®.

 

Annual Sessions

Annual Session

Every year we hold a 2-day annual meeting. Day 1 is about strengthening team health by bonding the group and fostering members’ willingness to engage in health debate. This day also serves as a strategic review, where the team creates a robust and detailed plan for the coming year and identifies all the possible issues that can get in the way of achieving your company’s next year goals.

Day 2 is about reconnecting to the vision and the strategy, setting priorities and it is concluded by solving the most critical issues, facilitated by the EOS Implementer.
