“You’re right,” said the other, “But neither one of us can fix it. Nobody can fix it until Monday. The boss told us to get this shipment out tonight, and we’ll get yelled at if we don’t. Remember what he did the last time something like this happened?”

Organizational charts are focused on who reports to who, but they they typically don’t address one of the major issues most companies struggle with: a lack of clarity around what the major functions of the organization are, and who is accountable for what.

Accountability charts provide clarity about who owns the major functions of an organization and identifies the primary roles and responsibilities for which they are accountable.

What If Your Issues List Isn't Working?

Written by Mike Kotsis on October 9, 2017

Some time ago, a client of mine had a ridiculously long Issues List that was getting out of control. They never seemed to be making progress on resolving their issues - in fact, their issues seemed to be exploding!

EOS® promises to help you solve your company's issues for good. Over time, you should be seeing fewer issues and gaining new ground as an organization. But what if your Issues List isn't working? It seems like you're rehashing the same issues over and over again, and frankly the Issues List seems to grow rather than shrink.

You've got Issues List Fatigue.
