“EOS had a major impact on helping us simplify our rather complex business. Each of the EOS Tools, including the Rocks, Scorecard, 8 Cashflow Drivers, Level 10 Meeting, LMA, and others, have significantly helped us affect the bottom line. I really value how Barry Gish helps us set SMART Rocks by driving our Leadership Team to identify the most important and strategic things we can accomplish in the next 90 days as well as helping us stay focused on accomplishing our 1, 3 and 10-year goals. On average, our Leadership Team sets 30 Rocks each Quarter and accomplishes them with a 90% success rate. The result on Petro Serve is exponential. EOS has been the fuel that powers growth here at Petro Serve USA.” – Kent
