Have you heard of the Entrepreneurial Operating System®?
The Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS®) is a
powerful way to help Alberta businesses not only
survive the current global pandemic and local economic
realities, but to ultimately help it reach its full potential.
To be clear, EOS is not a piece of technology; it is an
operating system for your organization. Much like your
computer or smartphone needs an operating system to function,
so too does your business – especially when conditions
Simply put, EOS is a business management system with
an integrated set of simple concepts and timeless tools that
help entrepreneurs and leaders get the most out of their businesses.
Supported by a simple-to-understand framework put
forward in founder Gino Wickman’s bestselling book Traction,
EOS helps to manage all the moving pieces and human energy
in a business so that everyone – from the senior leaders
to the people out in the field – are all on the same page and
rowing in the same direction.
The system consists of Six Key Components™ – VISION,
PEOPLE, DATA, ISSUES, PROCESS and TRACTION®. Within
each component, there are a handful of tools and disciplines
that are implemented to strengthen each area and promote
mastery. EOS is focused, practical (no theory!), intuitive and
works in all industries. Rather than trying to wrestle with
136 issues simultaneously, as we often do as business leaders,
the goal of EOS is to focus on strengthening the Six Key
Components™ – as all our issues are rooted in weaknesses in
one of the six areas.
