The 4 Disciplines of Execution®

Building roadmaps to achieve your business-critical goals.


Do your managers know how to institutionalize goal clarity and an execution process throughout the organization? When it comes to attaining wildly important organizational goals, the role of the manager in the business execution process is critical. At FranklinCovey, we’ve studied the topic of execution for several years in thousands of teams and in hundreds of organizations. Our research shows that execution breaks down in four ways:

  1. Managers and work teams don’t know the goal. Our research has shown that only 15 percent of employees actually know their organization’s most important goals—either there are no goals or they have too many goals.
  2. Managers and teams don’t know what to do to achieve the goal. Too many people don’t know what critical activities provide the greatest leverage to achieving team goals.
  3. They don’t keep score. Our research shows that most workers don’t know what the key measures of success are, and they don’t measure and track the specific behaviors that lead to goal accomplishment.
  4. They are not held accountable. Our research shows that fewer than 10 percent of people meet with their manager at least monthly to discuss their progress on work goals.

Establish a clear line of sight to your wildly important goals.

It takes incredible discipline to execute a strategic goal in any organization. But it takes even more discipline to do so again and again. Creating a culture of execution means embedding four basic disciplines into your organization. At every level, individuals, leaders, and teams need to institutionalize a common approach. The purpose of The 4 Disciplines of Execution: Manager Certification is not just for business management strategy, but to help managers create actual work plans.


Foster a culture of getting the most important things done.

The 4 Disciplines of Execution: Manager Certification’s main directive is to reinforce the critical role of the manager in the execution process, and hand them the tools to follow through. We’ll help your managers draft their own list of Wildly Important Goals (WIGs), measures, and scoreboards for their teams. Your managers will understand the importance of WIG sessions, and prepare to sponsor Team Work Sessions. With the disciplines in place, your managers will be ready to start executing on their goals—now. This program consists of 20 hours of instructor-led training. The program can be delivered in three consecutive days, three days over time, or in five half-day modules WHAT YOU RECEIVE:
