Why We Visualized the EOS® Scorecard Data


Why We Visualized the EOS® Scorecard Data

If your company is running on the Entrepreneurial Operating System®, you’re reviewing key measurables every week. Those numbers are vital to knowing how your people are doing as your company gains Traction®.

It’s crucial to get the most out of your data—and viewing your data the right way is nearly as important as viewing the right data. If you don’t understand what you’re looking at, you can’t act on it appropriately. Traction Tools software for EOS® helps you get the most out of your Scorecard metrics by visualizing your data.

Traction Tools’ visualized data is more powerful than other formats. Companies that use our Scorecard are positioning themselves to get better use out of their numbers, and to make better business decisions, so they can gain more traction.

What’s so great about the EOS Scorecard in Traction Tools? I’m glad you asked! Here are three business-boosting reasons you’ll get more out of visualized data with Traction Tools.

Process Data Easier and Faster

The EOS Scorecard in Traction Tools tells you exactly where your numbers stand, with just a glance. The data table is color-coded to indicate which measurables have hit your weekly goals (green) and which ones haven’t (red). In the blink of an eye, you can spot the numbers that need the most attention.

Better yet, we’ve just upgraded the tool for color accessibility. If you have trouble distinguishing red and green, you can personalize how the Scorecard appears on your own account.

Uncover Hidden Insights

Spreadsheets are great for reporting raw numbers, but they’re horrible when it comes to gaining deeper understanding. You can color-code cells to show good/bad numbers, but that doesn’t do much to peel back more valuable business insights. You’ve got to manually process that information yourself, and that’s almost impossible to do in the context of a Level 10 Meeting™.

But visualized data graphs can reveal insights that would otherwise remain hidden by spreadsheets. You can spot trends in a flash, or compare various data sets at a glance.

For example, you might see that new sales are holding steady, and proposals are on the rise. It’s great that you’re meeting your sales numbers each week—but not quite so great once you compare the two trends together. Now you’ve got a new item to drop down to the Issues List.

That’s what our Scorecard charts do for your weekly measurables.

Take Better Action

Everyone loves a good story—no one loves a good instruction manual. Like a good story, visualized data packs more of a punch than text-based data. It tells a story in a way that connects to the emotions, and it makes the urgency of information more concrete. It’s hard to ignore the implications of visualized information. And because visual data presents a clearer picture, necessary follow-up responses are more obvious.

As a result, visualized data tends to spark better decisions and more action. Departments can get ahead of trends and move proactively rather than reactively. Before you know it, you’re getting more done and seeing better numbers on your weekly Scorecard. It’s an upward spiral of performance and results!
