Why we visualized the EOS Scorecard™ data
If your company is running on the Entrepreneurial Operating System®, you’re reviewing key measurables every week using a Scorecard. Those numbers are vital to knowing how your people are doing as your company continues to gain Traction®.
It’s crucial to get everything you can out of your data, and that means 1) looking at the right data, and 2) looking at it in the right way. Visualizing complex data not only makes it easier to see what the numbers mean—it also makes strategic decisions that much easier to make.
What’s so great about the EOS Scorecard in Traction Tools? Glad you asked! Here are three business-boosting reasons you’ll get more out of visualized data with Traction Tools.
Process data efficiently and effectively
The EOS Scorecard in Traction Tools gives you exact numbers and metric trends at 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, and adjust accordingly.
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 useful for reporting raw numbers, but they’re not always great for spotting trends. Manually processing data is a time-consuming process, and usually can’t get done in a Level 10 Meeting.
But visualized data graphs can reveal insights that would otherwise remain hidden by spreadsheets. 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!

Take better action
Everyone loves a good story, but no one loves an instruction manual. Like a good story, visualized data packs more of a punch than text-based data. It connects the numbers to real life, and creates a sense of urgency as a result. And because visual data tells such a clear story, it’s easier to determine next-steps and To-Dos.
As a result, visualized data tends to spark better discussions and swifter 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!
