Harness People Energy – Define Roles & Create Accountability
To accomplish goals, you must first create a functional Accountability Chart and define leadership roles. This is a critical place to start, before you try to hire and/or rearrange people and their roles. Without defining the “seats” and knowing which people should be in those seats, it’s counterproductive to assign roles and responsibilities. The EOS Accountability Chart™ is an organized structure that provides clarity of roles for all revenue operations leaders and gets the right people in the right seats. If you're wondering how to improve operational efficiency, this is the first step.
Leverage EOS to Improve Operational Efficiency
Once you have the accountability structure, this creates a crystal-clear view of the company’s needs and leads to accountability through documented and measurable aligned actions.
"EOS challenges a management team, and each individual member of that team, to truly become their best by honestly and openly sharing observations and experiences." Glenn Mahnken, Former Head of Operations, Atomic Revenue
Define Your Process
Discover Your “Secret Sauce” of Doing Business
As a Certified EOS Implementer, I get asked all the time what’s the difference between process and procedure? A procedure is a set of guidelines for each position or area of the company that documents how you do your job (function/role). Sometimes procedures can be steps in a process done by one seat on the team. For example, safety procedures are strict, by-the-book steps to ensure your company is safety compliant. Creating a process of how your lead Safety Engineer can improve procedure with distinct elements and actions, such as prevention methods that are unique to your company, is the process by which the job gets done.
Therefore, process is what it takes to work across departments to achieve goals together. What processes gets you there? This is what makes your company unique in a sea of other similar companies. EOS helps you create documentation of the Core Processes and key steps to achieve outcomes (the 20% that gets 80% of the results) that can be followed by all (FBA) to create your consistent and unique way of doing business – this is your Secret Sauce!
Monitor Data for Decision Making
Know What it Takes to Win & See the Proof of Your Efforts
Following the EOS Model™, there is a Scorecard based on data, which is organized by behaviors, actions, and leading indicators that set goals for accomplishments and outcomes, week-by-week. This scorecard takes the data and allows for evidence-based decision making. No guesswork or emotions involved. Data keeps your leaders on track, navigating with better decisions, and gaining Traction® for consistent progress.
Cross-functional integration and unified people energy along with process and data creates outcomes based on your “secret sauce” way of doing business. All are imperative for aligned revenue operations and goal achievement.
