One of the best-run companies that Joe has had the pleasure of working with became successful, in large part, due to the fact that they embraced the OOS called ‘Scaling Up’ (created by Verne Harnish). We mention this to underscore that there are incredibly powerful OOS’ out there and you have choices. We at Growth Odyssey embrace and advise on the STAND® OOS.
A good OOS can take your organization to new heights. Commit to it. It may not be obvious at first, but a good OOS has been designed with great thought. Try and avoid dabbling or cherrypicking from multiple OOSs on your own. Doing so may prove to be perilous.
A good OOS is fueled by the best business minds who have ever lived. A good OOS creates a multiplier effect via each of its components working in harmony and in support of each other. It is our belief that trusting and embracing one OOS will ultimately get you to the promised land, sooner and in a scalable way.
Some OOSs encourage a rip and replace approach (not a bad thing), while others are more geared to begin the journey meeting you where you are (also not a bad thing). We have experience in both approaches and they both work!
You have choices. Pick one and run with it!
