Why Is Every Business Owner Reading This Book?
After completing E-Myth, I was hungry for more. Traction is currently the second most influential book in my library (after The Requisite Organization). It showed me there is a simple but comprehensive organizational blueprint for those of us that didn’t have a formal education in business management. It leads you down the road of “running” your business vs “guessing” your business.
Ask a business owner about EOS and they will likely know what you’re talking about. EOS stands for the Entrepreneur Operating System and includes six components: Vision, People, Data, Issues, Process, and Traction.
For those of you wanting to explore deeper into the importance of organizational structure and aligning your management team your next read after Traction should be “The Requisite Organization” by Elliot Jacques.
