BookYap’s Review:  TRACTION – Get a Grip on Your Business

Chapter 1: The Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS): Strengthening the Six Key Components

In a small startup or business venture, the founder or co-founders often take on multiple roles in the business’ day to day operation. Thus, their to-do list keeps getting longer if you don’t catch up fast enough, while there are many other things to worry about. In this chapter, the author explained the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS) which simplified things to 6 components that made up important factors in the organization’s operation.

In this section, the author briefly highlighted what each of these 6 components entailed with detail explanations in the following chapters. I do recognize the importance of these 6 components as the fundamental facts of any business operation: Vision, People, Data, Issues, Process, and Traction. If you want to run an efficient organization, this is the book you should read. I would say, by reading this first chapter you should know whether this book is for you or not.
