How the EOS Model™ Works

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.
Vision

Developing a clear and robust vision and sharing it with all is the foundation for getting everyone on the same page in the business.

People

Getting the best players on the team, and putting them in the right seat is what makes it possible for the company to deliver its vision.

Data

The data component is about cutting through the distractions, stories and personalities to get a handful of numbers that give you a pulse of what is going on in the business, and the ability to steer it where you want it to go.

Issues

Strengthening the Issues component means sleuthing out issues at every level of the company and following a 3 step process for solving them forever.

Process

In the process phase you take your winning formula and “systematize” your business to make sure your secret ingredients are repeated with every transaction and relationship. The overall process and each critical step shall be documented for consistent delivery, and ensuring your business is scalable without losing what is special about the company.

Traction®

This is where the rubber meets the road. Now that the foundation is set, it is time to bring on some on some discipline, accountability and follow through, and propel the business forward.

How the EOS Process™ Works

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. The process is a rhythm of strategic planning meetings, each with a specific, powerful agenda to create the steering tools needed for traction in your business.
90 Minute Meeting – The process all kicks off with a FREE 90 minute meeting where we can introduce your leadership team to EOS®. We will take you through each part of the process, discuss your needs, and from there you can decide if the EOS® process is right for your company.
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. With these tools in hand you will spend about 30 days putting them into practice and seeing improvement right away.
Vision Building Day 1™ – After using the tools developed in the Focus Day™ your leadership team will gather again for a day of planning where we will introduce the components of the Vision/Traction Organizer™ (V/TO). In this meeting you will clarify your vision, determine who you are and where you are going. Defining these core values and foundations of the business are very helpful in evaluating and recruiting your people. Get familiar and utilize these tools for 30 days and then you will be ready for Vision Building Day 2™.
Vision Building Day 2™ – Now it is time to complete your full game plan for the company. Your leadership team will again meet and we nail down your marketing strategy, craft your 3-Year Picture™ and create your 1-Year plan. Also issues will be unearthed, and priorities set for assigning and completing some of them in the next 90 days.

After that you can see from the diagram there will be a cycle of one day events for quarterly and annual planning sessions. In each of these meetings the original steering documents will be utilized, reviewed and updated to keep the business on track.
