Traction, by Gino Wickman, has been a bestseller and at our recent event: Get a GRIP on Your Business we found out why. Ryan Henry of Grip Business Traction gave us the rundown on the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS) that can help us clarify, simplify, and achieve our business vision.

What is EOS?

EOS, the Entrepreneurial Operating System, is a complete set of simple concepts and practical tools that has helped thousands of entrepreneurs get what they want from their businesses. Implementing EOS can help you (and your leadership team) get better at three things:

  • Vision—getting everyone in your organization on the same page with where you’re going, and how you plan to get there

  • Traction—establishing focus, discipline, and accountability throughout the company so that everyone executes on that vision daily

  • Healthy—helping the leadership team become more cohesive, functional, and healthy 

EOS can work in any entrepreneurial company – across diverse industries and business models. Ryan has worked with many types and sizes of companies to help them clarify and simplify so they can get traction towards achieving their vision.

The Six Key Components of a Successful Business

 Throughout the event we were introduced to the Six Key Components that we need to focus on in order to be successful. These six components include:

  1. Vision - the direction

  2. People - the right people in the right roles

  3. Data - the metrics that show the pulse of your company

  4.  Issues - become great problem solvers

  5. Process - nail down the process, the secret sauce, of how you do business so that its consistent and replicable

  6. Traction - discipline and accountability throughout the organization

Once these six components are in alignment, you’re on track to grow and achieve your vision completely. In order to go further with EOS, often an organization will hire an implementor that assists the organization through the change and assists them in clarifying, simplifying and achieving their vision.
