A Simple, Repeatable Formula for Executing Your Most Important PrioritiesEvery 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.
“Seventy percent of strategic failures are due to poor execution of leadership. It’s rarely for lack of smarts or vision.”
RAM CHARAN, EXECUTION: THE DISCIPLINE OF GETTING THINGS DONE
The 4 Disciplines of Execution®
Focus on the Wildly Important
Exceptional execution starts with narrowing the focus— clearly identifying what must be done, or nothing else you achieve really matters much.
Act on the Lead Measures
Twenty percent of activities produce eighty percent of results. The highest predictors of goal achievement are the 80/20 activities that are identified and codified into individual actions and tracked fanatically.
Keep a Compelling Scoreboard
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
Great performers thrive in a culture of accountability that is frequent, positive, and self-directed. Each team engages in a simple weekly process that highlights successes, analyzes failures, and course-corrects as necessary, creating the ultimate performance-management system.
