3 Execution Disciplines – John D. Rockefeller
Companies can develop habits over time to help them become excellent at execution. We help them to improve in the three execution disciplines that Verne Harnish, founder of the Gazelles organization writes about in his book “Mastering the Rockefeller Habits”:
• focus on the highest priorities
• gathering feedback from the organization and marketplace in the form of data and metrics, and
• establishing meeting rhythms that keep the lines of communication open from the top of the organization all the way to the bottom.
By consistently finding and executing on the highest priorities, organizations save time, energy and resources by not travelling down roads that become dead-ends. By keeping their antennae on alert monitoring both internal and external data and metrics, organizations see shifts more quickly and adjust to issues before they become fires. By building a healthy communication system, organizations keep everyone aligned and cognizant of what they need to accomplish, versus what the others on the team need to accomplish. Its’ simply remarkable what can get accomplished when the team works together!
