The Patient Organization: 7 Keys for making systems like Traction, EOS, Scaling Up, 4DX...work. Why do Traction, EOS(R), and Scaling Up work? The Patient Organization is a companion book to be used alongside today's popular Organizational Operating Systems (OOS), to explain what's under the hood, why they work, why they don't work and what you can do about it. If your OOS implementation feels mechanical, or like there is just something missing and you can not seem to put your finger on it, then you're ready for the TPO message and approach. Are you running your company on an Organizational Operating System (OOS) like Traction, EOS(R), the Entrepreneurial Operating System(R), Rockefeller Habits, Scaling Up, Gazelles, 4DX, Holocracy, or The Advantage? If you are using one of these systems, or if you have developed your own internal system, The Patient Organization is a must-read, as it unlocks the underlying reasons why the tools in your OOS are working, or not working. It is your Rosetta Stone for getting everything out of your system that you can. "An organization is essentially a human fiction, only given meaning and power by those who believe in it." -- Walt Brown, Author The reason a solid OOS works is that it helps drive and maintain an organization's common set of beliefs. There are seven areas humans need to align with at work in order to share in an organization's common belief. The more alignment and shared belief, the stronger your organization. "Folks have to know they belong, they must believe in the mission, the plan, the leaders, the product, they need to understand embrace and believe in what they are accountable for as it aligns to the mission, they need to believe in how they are measured, how they are heard, how they are developed and how they maintain balance. They need to understand what believing means, and a good OOS helps them maintain that belief." Seven Areas: Belong, Believe, Accountable, Measured, Heard, Developed, Balanced. The Patient Organization dives into the psychology and neurology behind the seven questions and then anchors the theory in your OOS with what Brown calls real world "Heavy Lifts"--exercises you can do with your team to test the strength of your OOS and advance the progress you have made in leveraging all your OOS can deliver.
