Since 2019, Cooperative has used EOS (Entrepreneurial Operating System) to operate our business. EOS has six main parts: People, Vision, Data, Issues, Process and Traction.
This spring, we’ll introduce and reinforce many EOS ideas. Think of it like this: we’re at the start of our EOS Road. We’re traveling a long way to gain the ultimate knowledge of EOS. As we go, new employees are joining us. We are all learning about our strengths and our areas of improvement.
Some EOS applications are new, like the People Analyzer. Others, like our Mission Statement and our Core Focus (also known as our “Why”) have been around for a long time. Sometimes, EOS is about creating a new tool, and sometimes it is pulling together what we already do. Soon, everything connects and we gain Traction toward our goal = to grow.
Our Core Focus, if you haven’t already guessed, is this: There’s No Place Like Home. Created in 2013, this Focus-this “Why”-is the heart and the brain of what we do. It also requires courage, which I believe each of you have.
