Keywords: Risk-Based Thinking Accountability, Lead Measures

Industry: All

Level: Advanced


Chris McChesney and Sean Covey's The 4 Disciplines of Execution is, "a simple, repeatable, and proven formula for executing on your most important strategic priorities in the midst of the (day-today) whirlwind." The 4 Disciplines of Focusing on the Wildly Important, Acting on Lead Measures, Keeping a Compelling Scoreboard, and Creating a Cadence of Accountability can be used as an effective tool for understanding an organization's context to determine actions to address risks and opportunities. By acting on the lead measure and creating a compelling scorecard, organizations can evaluate the effectiveness of the actions taken. 

A cadence of accountability drives home the process by ensuring actions are taken to improve processes and generate disciplines needed at the team level to turn the process into an ongoing way of life (not a project of the day that eventually is forgotten). This presentation will illustrate how the 4 Disciplines can be used to address the new risk-based thinking requirements of ISO 9001:2015.
