It’s time to take your business to the next level.
Eileen Sharp and Vic Hightower were frustrated. After years of profitable, predictable growth, Swan Services was in a rut. Meetings were called and discussions held, but few decisions were made and even less got done. People were pointing fingers and assigning blame, but nothing happened to solve Swan’s mounting problems. It felt as though they were working harder than ever but with less impact. The company Eileen and Vic had founded and built for 10 years was a different place. It just wasn’t fun anymore.
Their story is not unusual. The challenges they were facing are common, predictable, and solvable. Get A Grip tells the story of how Swan Services resolves its issues by implementing the Entrepreneurial Operating System. With the help of EOS, Eileen, Vic, and their leadership team master a set of managerial tools that allow them to get traction on their business, grow the business, and deliver better results for clients.
The story of Swan Services is a fable, but the Entrepreneurial Operating System is very real and has helped thousands of businesses worldwide. A complete entrepreneurial toolkit, EOS has helped thousands of businesses get to where they want to be.
In Get a Grip, learn how Swan Services leaders learned to develop and commit to a clear vision, establish focus, build discipline, and create a healthier and more cohesive team.
With characters and situations created from collective business experiences and stories, Get a Grip is a fable that will ring true for entrepreneurial leaders the world over and guide them to get their companies on track.

It describes the EOS system well, but also adds some of the real-life issues you will deal with while implementing it.
Bien détaillé et très facile à lire.
Le principe de gestion et les outils EOS sont très simple. Je compte bien implanter EOS dans mon entreprise.

It's an easy read, and whilst it has it's own nomenclature, if you've read any other business development books you'll be able to transpose certain concepts/names/descriptions. The trick isn't recognising the things that are going on/wrong, or the tools used to fix them; it's physically doing stuff about it.
I decided to get the entire team (we're small) a copy of the book, and then to engage with a business coach to ensure we check in regularly to hit our rocks (milestones). It's a good book if you're getting to a stage of feeling overwhelmed by it all, and want a direction or pathway to go down. There are other books out there, but this one hit the spot for me.
I found the book useful and insightful. However there were too many acronyms that weren't expanded enough times ... I didn't discover what V/TO was for a long time after seeing it, and quickly forgot what IDS stood for.
A good book for any business owners whose business has stalled and how to get the right staff in the right positions to help it to the next level. By using a fabled company it helps the reader to understand the examples given.
Worth the read
Die Schreibweise erinnert eher an ein Roman, als an einem Lehrbuch.
Um erste Berührungspunkte zu haben, im EOS kann ich das Buch anraten. Ungeeignet für jene, die schon tiefer in der Materie sind.
Erklärt auf spannende und einfache Weise die Grundzüge der operativen Unternehmenssteuerung.
Gute und einfache Darstellungen, kann man schön im eigenen Unternehmen oder beim Kunden anwenden.
Glaube gerade vielen KMU fehlen genau die im Buch beschriebenen Tools.
