Inside Traction, you’ll learn the secrets of strengthening the Six Key Components™ of your business. You’ll discover simple yet powerful ways to run your company that will give you and your leadership team more focus, more growth, and more enjoyment.

Based on years of real-world implementation in thousands of companies, the Entrepreneurial Operating System is a practical method for achieving the business success you have always envisioned.

This monograph grows out of two decades of Jim’s observations of how leaders have employed the flywheel concept to build and accelerate momentum. Drawing upon cases from massive growth corporations like Amazon to small companies, nonprofits, hospitals, and even K12 schools, this work breaks new intellectual ground. It also gives practical guidance to help leaders crystalize the components in their specific flywheels—this is the key to harnessing the full power of the flywheel effect.

Enterprise Security Competency Model

The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) collaborated with technical and subject matter experts from education, business, and industry to develop a comprehensive competency model for the Enterprise Security Industry. The model is designed as a resource supporting workforce development efforts to prepare the security workers that fulfill critical roles in the protection of national and global economies, providing a multitude of career opportunities ranging from managers and directors of enterprise security to intelligence analysts and chief security officers with major multinational corporations.

The Apollo Education Group and University of Phoenix developed the model and validated it in partnership with the ASIS Foundation. The ASIS International Chief Security Officer (CSO) Roundtable Leadership and Development Committee provided input and conducted with Apollo Education Group and the ASIS Foundation a series of validation sessions that included international delegates, subject matter experts and sessions with Bridge School of Management in New Delhi, India. The ASIS Foundation will continue to ensure that the model evolves to accommodate changing skill requirements.

ISO 31000


Using ISO 31000 SO 31000:2018, Risk management – Guidelines, provides principles, framework and a process for managing risk. It can be used by any organization regardless of its size, activity or sector.

Using ISO 31000 can help organizations increase the likelihood of achieving objectives, improve the identification of opportunities and threats and effectively allocate and use resources for risk treatment.

However, ISO 31000 cannot be used for certification purposes, but does provide guidance for internal or external audit programs. Organizations using it can compare their risk management practices with an internationally recognized benchmark, providing sound principles for effective management and corporate governance.
