- McChesney, Chris
discipline 1. focus on the wildly important
select one wildly important goal
within this goal, identify the most important objective that won’t be achieved without special attention.
discipline 2: act on the lead measures
there are lag and lead measures
lag is the end goal (?). they are the result of the past, they are lagging behind
lead measures — activities that drive a lag measure. they predict the lag-measure success and can be directly influenced
discipline 3. keep a compelling scoreboard
keep a score and show it in real time
it’s a discipline of engagement
discipline 4. create a cadence of accountability
regular and frequent meetings that focus on the wildly important goal
weekly, not more than 20 minutes
“what are the one or two most important things that I could do this week that will have the biggest impact on the scoreboard?”
did I meet last week’s commitments?
did they move the scoreboard?
what will I commit to this week?
