Regain Control of Your Business Through the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS®)

EOS Conference DSM USA

October 22, 2019

Entrepreneurship is a beast unlike any other. It’s easy to get caught up in the chaos of day-to-day business operations and forget that, as the sole leader of the organization, there is a constant need to be seeking new ways to maximize efficiency. The problem is there is not one perfect solution. Some opt to bring in a consultant, while others explore resources tools that might fit the bill. However, the goal remains the same — to ensure you are in control of running your business rather than your business running you. This is why the Master Builders of Iowa (MBI) is hosting a program for company leaders called The EOS® Experience.

The EOS® Experience

The Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS ®) combines timeless business principles with a set of simple, practical, real-world tools to help entrepreneurs get what they want out of their businesses. Created by an entrepreneur, the system is so successful at defining company goals, enhancing employee engagement and providing a measurement on how to positively change a business, it’s useful in nearly every organizational setting.

Given all the responsibilities that come with being an organization leader, this system might sound like a lot of additional work. To help,  MBI recommends you bring your company’s leadership team to the The `

Slated for 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 12 at the Iowa Events Center, The EOS® Experience will ease you and your leadership team into a better understanding of EOS®. The morning program will consist of a workshop conducted by  Gino Wickman who is the mastermind behind EOS® and has thrived at understanding how businesses tick.  In the afternoon, you and your team will hear from a panel of local leaders whose firms have adopted EOS®.  Some things you can expect to learn:

The EOS® Model™

Creating context and showing the big picture and understanding the six keys to building a truly great organization.

V/TO™ (Vision/Traction Organizer)

Building your vision and plan and getting it shared by all.

Right People, Right Seats (using the People Analyzer and GWC)

Define what “great people” really means for your business and implement standards that will attract and retain more of them.


Creating a 90-day world for your organization and a laser focus.

The Issue Solving Track™

Confronting and resolving tough issues and common frustrations.

We hope The EOS® Experience  will be the resource you need to gain control over your organization and “harness the human energy” (that is a Gino phrase) that bring new management ideas and guidance to your leadership team.
