We read this book on our team at work. So, why do I give this 3-stars while I gave a recent and rare read of a business management book only two-stars Executive Toughness? First you birth the book, than you try to exploit the success of the book into a bunch of CDs, webinars, videos, consultant workshops, certifications, yaddas and yaddas. Covey died a couple years ago from a mountain bike accident in Rock Canyon oh the stories I could regale you with about the dangers of Rock Canyon.

I would say this is most valuable for people who are in the higher echelons of their companies i. Rather than scattering many ideas into the marketplace and hoping one or two will catch on, 4DX encourages teams to focus on a specific WIG, then implement proven tools leading measures, the active scoreboard, group accountability to achieve that specific goal.

The Four Disciplines are: This book gives very clear and reasonable advice on what to do. Covey was coevy at building a consultant business that structured time-management, strategy, and execution ideas into highly marketable programs notice I don’t say books that could be sold in several formats and applied in multiple industries. I recommend this book over and over. Did it go down with a loud crash?


Thanks for telling us about the problem. It’s been referenced so often recently I felt like there must be a reason, so I finally read it. At least the development team of writers, consultants, VPs, staff, and family at the FranklinCovey Organization know how to write and edit.

Otherwise, the effort will fall by the wayside. I’ve read a lot of leadership and development books, but I have to say this one gave me renewed clarity at a vital time.

The 4 Disciplines of Execution: Achieving Your Wildly Important Goals

Overall, I’d say this book is frickin’ fantastic. Thing I loved most about this book was the concept and associated explanation of lead and lag measures, and how they impact achieving goals.

While I’m sure undertaking a full implementation of 4DX would lead to good results, business leaders would be wise to at least grab a hold of the concept of “less is more” when it comes to executing on your goals.

I expect 4DX helps me achieve my goals I’ll give it a try for sure. Sep 14, Robert Chapman rated it it was amazing Shelves: Open Preview See a Problem?

4 Disciplines of Execution (4DX): Closing the Execution Gap

I haven’t tried to implement this yet as a manager, but I think this will be very helpful and the colleagues I’ve talked to so far agree. I am very familiar with the FranklinCovey business model could probably vomit on demand each of the 7-habits and business strategy approach.

But I like the idea of focusing on execution and implementation, and I’m optimistic that this works. I enjoyed the reading. Or was it slowly and quietly suffocated by other competing priorities?

The stories, while too simplistic at times, are very relevant and apply to almost any environment. For the first time, I’m actually ahead of my targets. The approach is simple enough to actually be usable in an organization and it directly addresses what I think is the problem with all YABRs, follow through.

Anyway, I think the 4DX approach is just fine see my agnosticism line above.

The 4 Disciplines of Execution: Achieving Your Wildly Important Goals by Chris McChesney

I am currently reading this book. It took me a while to figure out, but I realized that the number and dollar amount of proposals I’d covry each week was the only thing I was tracking visibly and giving myself credit for doing. That may change as I put these disciplines into play. Over one year later Winning the game feels great.
