EOS is the Entrepreneurial Operating System: Simple Principles. Serious Growth!
The power of EOS is that it is a complete business system. It integrates a set of simple, practical business tools with a proven business process. Results: all the parts of your business work together smoothly. You get everything you want out of your organization.
Using EOS, your business will achieve three things we call Vision, Traction and Healthy:
The EOS Model
The EOS Model includes Six Key Components that need to be managed and reinforced to take your business from Good to Great, regardless of business size. Listen in to Gino Wickman, Founder of EOS, as he explains the EOS Model:
The EOS Process
EOS is a unique, proven business process that incorporates each of the EOS Tools in the right order, along with teaching, coaching and facilitating to give real results!
Business owners, leaders and managers are often very busy and don’t see how they can add anything more to their plate – thus the feeling of being stuck and frustrated. This process (illustrated below) takes that into consideration, helping leaders and managers to implement the tools that will have the greatest impact first. Within a short period of time, everything starts to fall into place and you experience that wonderful feeling of freedom. The business is no longer controlling you, you are controlling the business – improving and making substantial progress every 90 days. We call that traction.
How the EOS Process Works

- 90 Minute Meeting
Introduces the leadership team of a company to EOS, getting everyone on the same page so they can decide if they want to use the system and tools to strengthen their company.
- Focus Day
A day to give the leadership team tools to clarify who’s responsible for what, set priorities, improve communication, resolve issues and track critical numbers. The leadership team then uses their new tools in their business for the next 30 days to experience real improvement.
- Vision Building - Day 1
Another day with the leadership team that starts by reviewing and sharpening the Focus Day tools. They then begin to use the V/TO, Vision / Traction Organizer, tool to clarify their vision, starting with who they are, why they exist, what they do and where they are going. They will also get a great tool for reviewing their people. The team again uses their tools in their business 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 their vision, clarifying their Marketing Strategy, their 3-Year Picture, 1-Year Plan and priorities for the next 90 days. With the leaders now focused and all on the same page, they use the tools for the next 90 days to execute their plan. They will see more improvement.
- Quarterly Sessions
A day with the leadership team every 90 days to evaluate their performance, refocus, set priorities for the next 90 days and resolve any issues that might impede their progress. They experience measurable growth and improvement every 90 days – traction.
- Annual Sessions
2 days with the leadership team each year to work on team health and update their vision and plan for the next year and next quarter. The result is a healthy, focused leadership team and organization that makes continual progress towards achieving everything in their vision.
