WHAT IS BOSS?
BOSS (Business Operating Support System) has been developed over the last 20 years through my own personal experiences as an entrepreneur and investor. The (Kaizen or Agile) foundation of BOSS allows for continuous adaptation of new principles and best practices, helping BOSS to broaden its appeal across multiple industries and disciplines.
Over the last 20 years, I have had the opportunity to implement BOSS across dozens of industries as an entrepreneur and investor, and even shared the concepts with the NAVY Seals. All of these experiences have resulted in feedback that we have adapted into the foundation of the BOSS methodology.

A Message from Greg Shepard
"Over 95% of start-ups fail. We’ve all heard the depressing stats around the probability of entrepreneurs successfully starting and exiting a business. Hey, if it was easy everyone would do it, right? Over the last 20 years, I have successfully started 12 companies and exited each one within 24-36 months.
Meet the BOSS – The Agile Playbook for Startups explains the Business Operations Support System (BOSS), a tried-and-tested methodology and playbook for taking a company through each stage of the Startup Maturity Lifecycle to every entrepreneur's dream, a successful exit. In this book, I cover each stage in detail and combine real stories and experiences with a practical playbook to start executing today. Whether you are just starting your company or turning around an existing company, this book is for you.
Meet the BOSS is not a trendy gimmick of regurgitated theories and frameworks. It is based on real-world experiences from companies at each stage of the Startup Maturity Lifecycle. With step-by-step instructions for how to implement BOSS, you and your team can use this book as the cornerstone of your strategy."
