The EOS Process®
The EOS Process provides a proven way to put all the pieces together in a spaced learning environment, incorporating each of the EOS® Tools in the right order over time to best strengthen each key component of your business.
- Read the book Traction: Get a Grip on Your Business. Written by EOS Founder Gino Wickman, Traction contains all the tools and components that make up EOS. The book is based on Gino’s years of real-world, hands-on experience working with the leadership teams of entrepreneurial companies to help them fully implement EOS in their organizations.
- 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.
