Leadership turnover is inevitable in a growing/entrepreneurial company. In fact, approximately 80% of companies that implement EOS® experience a leadership team change within the first few years of their implementation. It’s a natural outcome as the priorities and roles within the company gain laser focus.
After completing the 3-Step Process Documenter™, and before the Core Process can be Followed By All (FBA), it's a best practice to do a review of the processes as a leadership team.
Before implementing EOS® in my business, my number one pet peeve was repeating myself. It was frustrating to feel like people weren’t listening to me, and it also seemed incredibly inefficient to say the same thing more than once. And anyone who knows me, knows that I am all about efficiency!
Congratulations! You’ve documented your company’s core processes. It’s a big undertaking for teams to simplify and document their processes. The next step is to roll them out to everyone in the company and get them followed by all. But how do you do that?
“It’s consistency, not smiles that keep customers coming back.”
Well-documented processes, that are followed by all, ensure consistency for your customers and scalability of your business. However, it’s one thing to document a process but another thing entirely to have it followed by all. Embracing something new, such as a process, doesn’t come easily to people. If you’ve invested time, money and resources to implement a new reporting process to manage workflow and information, you probably know what I mean. Usually, just over half of the employees are using it a year later. Why?
