What is EOS® (Entrepreneurial Operating System) & Is ZOKRI EOS® Software?

EOS® stands for Entrepreneurial Operating System and is a set of systems and processes created and marketed by EOS® Worldwide. The EOS® Model highlights Six Key Components of a business that, when optimized, will help leaders drive growth and succeed. The components are: Vision, Data, Process, Traction, Issues and People.

EOS® should be considered to be far more than a goal framework as it extends to include ways to help organizations achieve their goals, and is therefore much closer to being a business operating system.

What is EOS®

ZOKRI, EOS® Software & EOS Worldwide

ZOKRI

ZOKRI is not affiliated or associated with EOS® Worldwide. ZOKRI does not provide EOS® training and is not licensed to present or market our own business management software as EOS® software.

The fact that ZOKRI has the ability to host, manage and optimize universal business management best-practices is because they are just that, universal to all business and have been collectively developed and refined by generations of business leaders and can be read about in countless business management books. These include:

  • Sharing your Mission and Visions
  • Track KPIs, create dashboards and create company and team scoreboards
  • Set and track goals with a variety of measurable outcomes
  • Create and assign to-do’s
  • Flag issues as well as priorities
  • Run one-off and recurring meetings with agendas of your choice using the features and data contained within ZOKRI
  • Align and develop your people to ensure the right people are doing the right jobs

Is ZOKRI EOS® software that is licensed by EOS® Worldwide? ZOKRI definitely is not and currently has no intention of becoming affiliated with EOS® Worldwide.

What is our rationale? ZOKRI has the flexibility to evolve and extend to the frameworks, systems, processes and ways of working our customers find work for them.

For example, if you wanted to move away from Stephen Covey’s concept of Rocks to OKRs or WIGs, you can in a few clicks. Or you don’t want to follow an exact meeting agenda format and evolve it to include or exclude certain parts, you can.
