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.
