Quote of the week
"Quality doesn’t have to be defined. You understand it without definition."
With today's pressure to deliver business results, it is common for a team to have multiple goals to achieve – and they are all important.
4 DISCIPLINES OF EXECUTION is a practical management process, which helps the team to define it's most important goals that really help the achievement of organizational strategic plans, and ensures that all team members learn their most important goals and focus to execute them.
WHY EXECUTION BREAKS DOWN?
There are four main reasons why execution breaks down:
IMPLEMENTING 4 DISCIPLINES OF EXECUTION
*WIG – Wildly Important Goal
Everyone on the team is crystal clear about and committed to the few absolute top priorities that define success. The „Wildly Important Goal“ (WIG) is the one that must be achieved, or nothing else you achieve really matters much.
Everyone knows and commits to a few „80/20“ activities that will have the most impact; then they use „lead measures“ to track those activities relentlessly.
Everyone knows the critical measures of success and, at every moment, if they are winning or not. A compelling scoreboard motivates people to win.
Everyone accounts frequently and regularly for progress toward the goals. Every team engages in a simple weekly “WIG Session“ to track successes, analyze failures, and „course-correct“ as necessary.
4 DISCIPLINES OF EXECUTION PROCESS
Discipline 1 is about what to do; Discipline 2, how to do it; Discipline 3, what success means; and Discipline 4 (which circles the others), an ongoing cycle of accountability that drives success.
