Executing Strategies In The Midst of Daily Urgencies


Do you remember the last major initiative you watched die in your organization?

Did it go down with a loud crash? Or was it slowly and quietly suffocated by other competing priorities? By the time it finally disappeared, it’s likely no one even noticed. What happened? The “whirlwind” of urgent activity required to keep things running day-to-day devoured the time and energy needed to execute your strategy for tomorrow! 4Dx can change all that forever.

The 4DX process has been refined to achieve three objectives:

1. High quality implementation in the shortest possible time.

2. Maximum leader and team engagement with minimum disruption to business operations.

3. Sustainable WIG results through full process adoption (new habits).

4DX is not theory, but a proven set of principles and practices that have been tested and refined by hundreds of organizations and 126,000+ teams over many years. When a company or an individual adheres to these disciplines, they achieve superb results — regardless of the goal. 4DX represents a new way of thinking and working that are essential to thriving in today’s competitive climate.

The 4 Disciplines

    Focus on the Wildly Important Goal

    Only 15 percent of employees actually know their organization’s most important goals—either there are no goals or they have too many goals.

  • Increase engagement
    Act on Lead Measures

    Too many people don’t know what critical activities provide the greatest leverage to achieving team goals.

  • Organizational Culture
    Keep a Compelling Scoreboard

    People play differently when they are keeping score.

  • next generation
    Create a Cadence of Accountability

    Fewer than 10 percent of people meet with their manager at least monthly to discuss their progress on work goals.

“Seventy percent of strategic failures are due to poor execution of leadership. It’s rarely lack of smarts or vision.”
