Chris McChesney, Jim Huling, and Sean Covey collaborated to author this #1 Wall Street Journal Business Bestseller. The 4 Disciplines of Execution create a winnable game. They give you the power to execute on your most important goals in the face of competing priorities and distractions.
The 4 Disciplines of Execution is not a theory. It is a proven set of practices that have been tested and refined by hundreds of organizations and thousands of teams over many years. When a company or an individual adheres to these disciplines, they achieve superb results, regardless of the goal. The disciplines are powerful yet simple. They are not, however, simplistic. They can be challenging to apply and sustain as they require us to work differently than we normally do.
The objective of the 4DX process is to teach leaders how to help their teams execute on their highest priorities in the midst of the whirlwind of the day-to-day. We find that by not just teaching 4DX to leaders, but teaching them to teach and implement the process with their teams, they “own the process” at a deeper level and the results are often groundbreaking. Through thousands of implementations, we have identified four critical milestones that must be achieved for optimal results and engagement.
The 4DX process has been refined to achieve three objectives:
● High quality implementation in the shortest possible time
● Maximum leader and team engagement with minimum disruption to business operations
● Sustainable WIG results through full process adoption (new habits)
