Then some of these problems should be familiar?
- Lack of control over your time, the market and your company.
- You are frustrated with your employees, customers, vendors or partners - You are not all on the same page.
- Not enough profit. Growth has stopped - no matter what you do.
- Nothing is working: You have tried various strategies and quick fix remedies. You're spinning your wheels, and you need traction to move again.
If that describes you, then the author invites you to join him on a journey to better control your business and burst through the ceiling - to have better balance, better results, more fun, and more profitability.
Briefly, his Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS) has six key components that go right to the roots of the six most important aspects of the business and strengthens them, eliminating the symptomatic issues by solving the real ones.
The principles are not new. What is dramatically new is the integration of these best practices into a complete system for organising and operating the business.
It takes two to tango. The author provides the framework and a step by step guide. You and your management must provide the energy, the orchestration and implementation.
In summary, "successful businesses operate with a crystal clear vision that is shared by everyone. They have the right people in the right seats. They have a pulse on their operations by watching and managing a handful of numbers on a weekly basis. They identify and solve issues promptly in an open an honest environment. They document their processes and ensure that everyone follows them. They establish priorities for each employee and ensure that a high level of trust, communication, and accountability exists on each team."
This book is practical, down to earth, and concise. It does not only provide the why and the what, but also the how.
There may be differing opinions about what could or should be added to the system. However, on balance The Entrepreneur Operating System is comprehensive and solid.
While the book is a 'do it yourself' manual you could add significant value to its implementation by using an objective third party to assist with the strategic review. This person need not be an industry expert. You just need someone with a good business brain and an objective view of the issues being raised. This could prove the difference between lots of chat and real strategic change.
