THE THREE TYPES OF EOS IMPLEMENTERS
Members of EOS Base Camp can designate themselves an EOS Implementer, so long as they maintain a subscription to Base Camp.

Professional EOS Implementers have made a significant financial and time commitment to attend EOS Boot Camp and maintain their Professional Designation. In order to earn and retain their status they must:

EOS IMPLEMENTATION OPTIONS
Hire an EOS Implementer
EOS is simple, but not easy. The tools are simple and practical, but change is hard and often requires outside perspective and energy to accomplish. The Optimize For Growth (O4G) team of EOS Implementers are EOS experts who obsess about helping you and your team:
- Follow the EOS Process™ and implement the tools purely and without errors
- Achieve mastery quickly instead of incomplete utilization
- Foster more accountability throughout your organization

- Work together as a cohesive, functional team
- Get more of the most important things done every week
- Clarify, simplify and achieve your vision
How long is a typical engagement with an EOS Implementer?
A typical engagement with a EOS Implementer is 18 to 24 months and varies from client to client. We typically meet 10+/- times over that period of time. I have worked with clients for as few as 5 sessions over 12 months and have some clients who I continue facilitate their quarterly and annual EOS sessions 5+ years later. The goal of an EOS engagement is get the team 80+% strong in all Six Key Components of the EOS Model™. When one of my client teams achieves to 80+% strength in all Six Key Components and wants to graduate I consider it a time for celebration. Are you ready to get your team to 80+% strong?
If you prefer to implement EOS on your own, use these tools and tips to improve your chances of success: First and foremost, to truly maximize your success, attend Self-Implementer workshops provided by O4G EOS Implementers to be connected to peers trying to work through the self-implementation process and get specialized direction unavailable from any of the books or tools otherwise available to you. Additionally, you should:
- Start the journey by inviting a certified or professional EOS Implementer to conduct a pure 90 Minute Meeting Workshop
- Read Traction and Get A Grip along with your entire team
- Choose an “internal EOS Implementer” from your leadership team and have them join Base Camp
- When your Implementer is fully prepared, follow the EOS Process purely
- Stick with it. EOS is simple, not easy
- If you get stuck, ask the EOS Implementer who conducted your 90 Minute Meeting for assistance. We’re always here to help.
EOS SELF-IMPLEMENTER WORKSHOP
The EOS Self-Implementer Workshop is designed for companies who are looking to learn more about EOS and improve their results. It can be challenging to remain disciplined and focused without the guidance of a Professional EOS Implementer. This interactive workshop will help you master the EOS Foundational Tools. You will benefit from the shared wisdom of the other workshop participants and the professional facilitation of an O4G EOS Implementer.
EOS Base Camp is an online collection of resources to help you get traction. It goes far beyond Traction and Get a Grip to give you additional media you need to successfully guide your organization through the EOS Process™.
