Publisher's Summary

The 4 Disciplines of Execution is a guide for businesses to reliably commit to the goals and plans they set, authored by associates from FranklinCovey, a management consultancy. Rather than focusing on what a business must accomplish to be successful, the four disciplines establish how to accomplish those things.

One reason commitments tend to be abandoned in business is that new projects and goals are less urgent than the day-to-day tasks of each individual employee, which the authors call the "whirlwind". The key to commitment fulfillment is for new tasks to take up only a small portion of each employee's time, but for that employee to be held accountable for completing them.

Please note: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and not the original book.

not a good investment. time or money

not even worth the couple of dollars I paid. hoped to get a little extra insight before the whole book, but not worth the time.... just read the book

Not worth it

Not worth the time, not worth the price. It just keeps self advertising the services, and keeps repeating the concept of wildly important goals (wigs).

Summary of 4DX

While providing a good summary of the book The 4 disciplines of execution in condensed format, the original gives you a much fuller scope and view.
