3 Ways EOS® Software Maximizes Your Company Scorecard


3 Ways EOS® Software Maximizes Your Company Scorecard

Ever notice the beauty of a baseball scorecard? It’s a pretty amazing example of efficiency and simplicity. With just a glance, you know not simply if your team won, but how they performed. A single sheet tells you a stack of stats, including hits, walks, strikeouts, double plays, bases advanced, and more.

But the genius of a baseball scorecard is its efficiency. All that information, contained in a tiny page. Those little scorecards are so poignant that many baseball fans keep them for years as a memory key to reflect on the game later. Pretty amazing.

At Traction® Tools, we’re big on efficiency. Maybe you’ve noticed. We help you get the most out of your experience with EOS, and that includes your company Scorecard. As Gino Wickman says, managing metrics saves time. So we’ve built the Traction Tools Scorecard module to help your company maximize your efficiency.

Want to get the most out of your Traction Tools Scorecards? Let’s take a look at what the Scorecard module can do for you.

Maximize Your Level 10 Meeting™ Efficiency

The quicker you can review your numbers, the more efficient your meeting will be. We’ve built the Traction Tools Scorecard to help you prep for your Level 10 Meetings, and run them, at peak efficiency. The Scorecard is embedded into the agenda, so it automatically displays when you get to that item in the meeting.

Before the meeting, you can configure the Scorecard so that it’s easy to use. Order measurables by priority or group related items together. Add a section divider so that you can take in the data one section at a time, with just a glance.

Need to report a measurable that another Level 10 Meeting is using? No problem! Traction Tools lets you share measurables across Level 10 Meetings.

Optimize Your Data

There’s nothing more frustrating than an incomprehensible spreadsheet with multiple tabs and notations in strange places. We get it, and we’ve been there! That’s why we’ve made the Traction Tools Scorecard easy to understand your numbers at a glance.

Data is color-coded green and red, so you know immediately if any numbers are off-track. And since you can configure the tool to display any number of weeks at a time, you’ll see trends pretty quickly, too. Don’t like the coloration? You can turn it off in your personal scorecard. (An export option also allows you to view all historical data in your spreadsheet tool of choice.)

While you can view multiple weeks, you probably want to focus on the current week’s numbers. The Scorecard highlights the current week by default so you can easily spot it and focus on it. If you prefer to highlight the previous week instead, you can switch it with a couple mouse clicks. This feature also lets you use the context-aware buttons to create issues and To-Dos.

That said, we also understand “this week,” or “last week” are relative to the meeting pulse of your team. If you track measurables from Monday through Sunday, you’ll want your Scorecard to reflect that—not Sunday through Saturday. Or maybe you want your reporting to start on the same day as your Level 10 Meeting. You can do that! The Scorecard lets you define the first day of the reporting week—Sunday, Monday or any other day you want to fit exactly what your team needs.

Streamline Your Recording

It’s important to streamline your prep for Level 10 Meetings—not just the meetings themselves. That includes data entry. We’ve found many of our customers have one person who owns a number, and an administrator who updates the line item in the Scorecard. Traction Tools lets you show both the owner and administrator of each measurable. You can even add an administrator who doesn’t participate in the Level 10 Meeting.

Doug Andersen, Integrator at Magnet 360, noticed how much prep time Traction Tools is saving his company. “Thanks for your help! You save me at least an hour a week getting scorecards and agendas ready for the Level 10 Meeting,” he said.
