Review

"Since implementing the entrepreneurial operating system outlined in [Traction], my company has been more productive than ever. . . . The book brings proven business best practices from the top thought leaders in business into one hands-on manual that you can apply today."

“Having coached and trained over 13,000 entrepreneurs, I know the challenges they face. This book is a must for any business owner and their management team. Traction provides a powerful, practical, and simple system for running your business.”
Dan Sullivan, President and Founder, The Strategic Coach

“With the Traction tools in place, we now have faster growth, increased profitability and great people that we enjoy working with. Our growth rate has averaged over 20 percent per year. These results put us in a position to sell our company to a public company for above-normal multiples and reacquire the company after just a year and a half.”

Darton Case, President, The Entrepreneurs’ Organization

“The concepts in Traction saved our company from mediocrity and propelled us to excellence. They have provided us with the tools to deal with any situation that might arise and better yet, to head off some situations at the pass. We now have all the right people in the right seats doing the right jobs.
Rob Tamblyn, President, The Benefits Company

If you are a business owner than you definitely need to read this book. It is a complete step by step system about how to create a systemitzed business. I would have paid far more for this book so it is an incredible value. I also recommend reading Get A Grip which is a fable of how a consultant would walk a business thru the process using these tools. Buy this book right now and there is no way you will regret it! Unless you just want to do everything yourself in your business and never have a business that you can sell. :)

As I began to read this book, I was reminded of a book co-authored by Chip and Dan Heath in which they explain why a few ideas "stick" but most don't. It can also be said about business initiatives in that some have "traction" but most don't. That is Gino Wickman's core thesis. As he explains, most entrepreneurs experience one or (probably) more of five common frustrations: lack of control, underperforming workers, insufficient (if any) profits, limited growth potential, and dysfunctional operations. In a phrase, they can't "get a grip" on their business. What they need is what Wickman characterizes as a "holistic, self-sustaining system that addresses the six aspects of a business": Vision, People, Data, Issues, Process, and Traction. What he offers is the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS) that, if "mastered" (i.e. installed and then maintained properly), will enable business leaders to integrate the six components of their business "into a powerful framework that will help [them] gain traction and realize the vision [they've] always had for [their] company.Read more ›
