I would say this is most valuable for people who are in the higher echelons of their compa I’ll start off by saying I am probably not the target audience for this book. I hope to apply these principles in further areas of work and other goal setting. Overall, I’d say this book is frickin’ fantastic. 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?
Return to Book Page. 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.

Sep 27, Ty rated it it was amazing. I will need to re-read this in more depth and follow through on the links to case studies and other resources found embedded in this ebook. As a negative point of the book, it is too long for the main idea, so it all starts to repeat over and over Did it go down with a loud crash?
Through simple techniques, this book has already helped me in the workplace.
And if I’m lucky, a 4DX devotee on Goodreads will leave me a comment with their own perspective on what 4DX takes to work, and how it went, really, for really real.
They don’t offer any outside scientific evaluation of their technique but they do offer testimonials from companies that piloted the approach in some locations and not others, with the result that 4DX sites did way better. The 4DX approach makes sense in the context of general d4x of behavior change, because it gets groups of people working step by step toward meaningful objective goals with frequent feedback.
When I read this I didn’t laugh or gag once, and that is I guess at least worth one additional star. Show the lead measures and whether the team is winning; don’t muddle it up with a lot of complex data. Sep 17, Bill rated it it was ok Recommends it for: I’m not sure why I didn’t read this book sooner.
Great approach to get your goals done professional AND personal ones. Jun 09, Robson Castilho covfy it liked it Shelves: I have to say, this is one of the best books I’ve read in a while. Practical, realistic, intellectually simple and yet grueling to make it happen.
Want to Read saving…. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. I had to read this for work. It’s a unique way to look at reaching business goals.
Originally, it was recommended to me by our CFO and leader of clvey department.

In many ways I’m biased by my own agnosticism towards Franklin Covey. But seriously, every time someone brings up WIGs at work without irony, I start to cringe and look for a quick exit or hidden bottle of whiskey.
4 Disciplines of Execution (4DX): Closing the Execution Gap
These tactics are based on the authors’ trial-and-error experience consulting with thousands of employees. No trivia or quizzes yet. Overall, The 4 Disciplines of Execution is a comprehensive, useful addition to the canon of leadership training tools. It took me a while to figure out, but 4xd realized that the number and dollar amount of proposals I’d submitted each week was the only clvey I was tracking visibly and giving myself credit for doing.
They want a quarter-inch hole. I fought the urge to immediately try to utilize 4DX and opted instead to buy a copy of the book for others on my team. Since I started using 4DX, I’ve felt much more in control of my life, I can see the progress I’m making and what I need to do to make even more, and I’m finally making money!

I’m hoping this book provides them with as much excitement and clarity as it did me. Open Preview See a Problem? The majority of key concepts make sense, like: I cant wait to put the principles in action. I think most business people will readily identify with the concept of the “whirlwind” and the associated frustration of not being able to focus on the activities that you know will move your business forward. When a company or an individual adheres to these disciplines, they achieve superb results—regardless of the goal.
