DEO MAP: The Only Operating System Created Just for Growing Dental Companies
When DEO MAP is installed into your company, you will grow your business successfully and with less frustration. DEO MAP guides dental leaders through four phases of every dental entrepreneur’s journey: Basecamp, Climb, Peaks, and Destination broken down into 10 elements – a successful operating system that drives growth.
Following is an outline of the elements that the DEO MAP teaches in our Immersion Program.
This is the compass that helps you plan where you want to go to ensure you’re charting the right course.
Strategy is where you’ll prepare all of the essentials that you need including vision, a strategy to get you there, an org chart to support it, a way to keep score, and more
Ensuring you have the correct organizational structure to support you through your dental company’s growth will get you to your destination faster.
Your scoreboard is where you keep KPIs and metrics that track the progress you are making toward your goals.
Your meetings need rules, cadence, and structure to keep a rhythm that helps you grow.
Culture is how you keep your team healthy, the morale strong, and ensure you have the right people for the journey.
You need the right dental systems to survive your growth. They will constantly need to be modified, improved, and refined, and news systems may need to be built.
Peaks & Destination
Celebration is an important element of growth: when you reach a goal, you celebrate, recognize and reward your team.
REST & RECOVER
Here is where you evaluate if you still have the right people, systems, and targets in place to reach your goals.
After you reach a goal, this is where you plan for what is next on the journey: time to determine and plan for the next phase whether it’s exit planning, PE, acquisitions, or another entrepreneurial venture.
The goals of each of DEO MAP’s phases and elements are supported with in-person training; coaching calls; a collection of carefully curated tools to reach goals including Scorecards, Templates, Examples, Infographics, Roadmaps, and Checklists; and much much more.
How is DEO different from other Programs or Consultants?
DEO offers much more than consultants. Yes, we do offer expert subject matter advice as consultants do, but with DEO Membership, you’ll be taught a proven blueprint for dental practice growth, DEO MAP, through our proprietary curriculum.
Merely getting advice is not going to get you where you want to go. Advice might work for short-term solutions, but that’s more of a band-aid approach. Long-term and predictable growth happens when you and your company adopt and follow the right systems which we provide through DEO MAP. It’s the operating system built just for growing dental companies. DEO MAP has been created for and battle-tested by 100s of satisfied dentist entrepreneurs who are using it right now to successfully grow their dental practices.
Plus, getting trained to install the DEO MAP operating system into your dental practice will give you more results for a fraction of the cost of consultants. Instead of spending tens of thousands of dollars on consultants with little follow-up and follow-through, with DEO you get tactical step-by-step training to establish the DEO MAP operating system. It promises to grow your dental group through an affordable, no-contract monthly retainer with a turn-by-turn roadmap for growth.
What is an Operating System?
Plainly put, a business operating system is the way you run your company. It’s how you do what you do, your end-all goal, and what you expect from your team so you can get there. Before DEO MAP, there were many different existing operating system models for growing businesses, but there were none that took into account the complexity and issues of a growing dental company… until DEO MAP was created.
DEO saw a need in the industry that wasn’t being met by existing operating system models. The dental industry is unique and needs a unique operating system to serve it.
DEO MAP delivers an abundance architecture that is more specific to the needs of dental entrepreneurs. With DEO MAP, you get a guide for your company’s direction and strategy. It allows you to communicate with your team by creating a common language. In our experience, without an operating system to guide you, your dental company can stagnate and growth can stall but with DEO MAP, dental leaders can change that trajectory.
