Worldwide, organizations spend $31+ billion on strategy creation, and more than 80 percent of those strategies fail to produce expected results. What’s been missing is a proven system for consistently executing on strategy through people. For over 20 years, the FranklinCovey Execution Practice has studied why execution fails, what can be done to fix it, and what it takes to set, track, and achieve breakthrough results around key strategic targets. They have worked with more than 140,000 teams in over 4,000 client implementations and have a proven track record of case-worthy results in every kind of industry worldwide, in business, government, and education.
The 4DX System is based on The Wall Street Journal bestseller, The 4 Disciplines of Execution: Achieving Your Wildly Important Goals®, authored by Chris McChesney, Sean Covey, Jim Huling, with Beverly Walker and Scott Thiele. It outlines a proven process for helping organizations turn sporadic performance into a system of consistent predictable results. It is applied at two levels: Leaders of leaders, and frontline teams. Based on The 4 Disciplines of Execution, senior leaders conduct four actions with their team leaders to scale impact and results:
- Define the Breakthrough. Narrow the focus and create clarity and commitment around a key breakthrough result with executable targets.
- Activate Frontline Teams. Unleash and apply everyone’s collective energy toward your key breakthrough result using the 4DX principles and implementation processes. 4DX principles create a common language and process for front-line implementation of the key breakthrough result.
- Create Organizational Transparency. Utilize a scalable platform, The 4DX® Platform, with scoreboards that let everyone know if they’re winning or losing as a team, as individuals, and as an organization.
- Track Execution Pace. Track the pace of progress real-time using a metric called XPS (Execution Performance Score) to ensure all your teams are on track to achieving your breakthrough result.
The 4DX framework allows leaders to effectively deal with their biggest challenge; executing strategy that requires a change in human behavior at scale. The 4DX System supplies the framework, tools, and measurement resources to ensure breakthrough results. Also included is The 4DX Platform, an online tool and app that supports the methodology by tracking commitments and goal achievement, providing a cadence of accountability to both individuals and organizations, and ensuring overall success. The 4DX System is the key to organizations moving from simply reaching a few goals to dramatically changing their impact in the marketplace.
