A Simple, Repeatable Formula for Executing Your Most Important Priorities
Every year, organizations spend more than $30 billion on strategy creation — and more than 80% of those strategies fail. FranklinCovey’s The 4 Disciplines of Execution® methodology provides the framework for organizations seeking to increase strategic execution by creating a culture of high performance.
This is the discipline of focus. Exceptional execution starts with narrowing the focus — clearly identifying what must be done. Otherwise, nothing else you achieve really matters much.
Act on the Lead Measures
This is the discipline of leverage. 80% of your results will come from 20% of your activities — are you focusing on the right ones? Discipline 2 is based on the principle that not all actions are created equal. Identify and act on the activities with the highest leverage.
Keep a Compelling Scoreboard
This is the discipline of engagement. People and teams play differently when they are keeping score, and the right kind of scoreboards motivate the players to win.
Create a Cadence of Accountability
This is the discipline of accountability. Each team engages in a simple weekly process that highlights successes, analyzes failures, and course-corrects as necessary, creating the ultimate performance-management system.
