About EOS

What Is EOS®?

We believe in the power of entrepreneurship to change people’s lives, and we believe that our tools have the power to change entrepreneurs’ lives. EOS®, the Entrepreneurial Operating System®, is a set of simple concepts and practical tools that has helped thousands of entrepreneurs around the world get what they want from their businesses and create a positive impact on the people and societies around them.

Our Story

Fittingly, our own story is one of entrepreneurship. 

EOS founder Gino Wickman became the owner of his family business at the young age of 21. While turning that business around (and eventually selling it), he and other business owners started the Detroit chapter of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization. After retiring from his own company, Gino created the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS) to help organizational leadership teams get what they want out of their businesses.

Gino joined forces with Don Tinney, a business veteran with 30 years of experience leading entrepreneurial teams, in 2005. Together they built a community of EOS Implementers® who are passionate about helping entrepreneurial companies and their leadership teams thrive using the EOS Process® and Tools.

Today, over 100,000 companies use EOS Tools to gain control of their organizations, get the right people in the right seats, and make sure all of their human energy is channeled in the right direction. 

Core Values

Core values are extremely important at EOS Worldwide. Our brand should reflect the fact that we’re abundance-minded and collaborative, and that we work together to grow individually, as well as to help entrepreneurs worldwide. At our core, we are people who:

Are humbly confident

Open, honest, real and well-practiced, ready to make a positive difference

Do the right thing

Never betraying a trust and doing whatever it takes to resolve every issue so people can move forward

Grow or Die

Driven to maximize every situation and take ourselves and our clients to the next level

Help First

Subordinating our personal interests to advance others, always giving value before expecting anything in return

Do What We Say

Sometimes more, never less

Logos

The Why of the Logo

No symbol is more important to our brand identity than our logo. It must be clear, memorable, meaningful, and universal. Our logo incorporates the EOS Model® and lightbulb because nothing exemplifies the EOS brand more powerfully. With the Model and a more modern take on our lightbulb, our new logo presents a bolder, more unified, and more globally translatable representation of who we are. The symbolism: Our process will help shine a light on the root problems in your business, spark innovative ideas, and guide you on your entrepreneurial journey.

Proper Attribution and Intellectual Property

It’s important to maintain consistency with the EOS brand. That means giving proper credit to EOS intellectual property, and making sure that you don’t misrepresent EOS Worldwide.

The intellectual property created by Gino Wickman and protected by EOS Worldwide includes content found in Base Camp, in EOS books, in EOS software, and on the EOS Worldwide website and mobile app. Replicating that content for your own use is forbidden.

Official Terminology

Our full company name is EOS Worldwide. This should be used for all references to our company. The system should be referred to as the Entrepreneurial Operating System®, or EOS®. Traction is the name of the book. Do not refer to the EOS process or system as “Traction” or the “Traction System.” EOS Implementer® and EOS Implementers® are both registered trademarks. 

Proper Attribution of EOS Worldwide Intellectual Property

Use of any copyrighted or trademarked terms in any text or graphics should also give proper acknowledgment to EOS Worldwide. Include trademark or copyright symbols on the first instance that a term is mentioned on a page or in a document. There is no need to use the symbol on every instance of the term in that document or page.

Protecting EOS Intellectual Property  

EOS is a complete system, with a proven process and a full set of practical tools that help entrepreneurs get what they want from their businesses. Purely following the EOS Process® and fully implementing the tools in the EOS Toolbox™ has proved to help target market entrepreneurs strengthen the Six Key Components™ of their business.

A person using the designation “EOS Implementer®” agrees to teach EOS in its purest form, following the EOS Process and purely teaching the EOS Tools (as further defined in Base Camp and/or the Traction Library).

  • No Omissions
    You may not skip steps in the process or decide to leave out or stop teaching certain tools.
  • No Tweaks or Other Changes
    You must follow the process as designed—and teach the tools as recommended — until your clients understand and are using the 20 tools in the EOS Toolbox wherever possible, without modifying them.
  • No Additions
    In its purest form, EOS is all a company needs to strengthen the Six Key Components. Recommending or selling other resources, content, or tools as a way to help your client strengthen one or more of the Six Key Components is not necessary, and is not pure EOS Implementation. As an exception, you may find a client still wanting more help after you’ve taught the EOS Tools purely. In these rare cases, you may recommend additional content, tools, or disciplines. But you must be clear that it is NOT part of EOS. It can’t be branded or marketed in a way that implies that it is part of EOS or in any way connected to EOS Worldwide. In other words: no “bolt-ons” to the EOS Model, EOS Process, or EOS Toolbox. If you derive income from recommending additional resources, content, or tools, then you must disclose this when making the recommendation.

Trademarks

EOS has trademark rights in each of the terms below, as well as in our stylized lightbulb logo. Also, each of the terms below has a specific meaning within EOS and must be used appropriately. EOS Worldwide permits EOS Implementers who have active Base Camp subscriptions to use our trademarks subject to the limitations provided in the Base Camp Membership Agreement.
