What Are The Six Disciplines for Excellence?

We're often asked - what are these Six Disciplines for Excellence?

We simplify to six core areas of business discipline:

  • Discipline I. Decide What's Important (STRATEGY)
  • Discipline II. Set Goals That Lead (PLANNING)
  • Discipline III. Align Systems (ORGANIZATION)
  • Discipline IV. Work The Plan (EXECUTION)
  • Discipline V. Innovate Purposefully (INNOVATION)
  • Disciplines VI. Step Back (LEARNING)

BOTTOMLINE: OK, so you've read business improvement books that told you "what" other organizations did to become excellent, or "why" they became top-performing companies. But most books don't tell you HOW you can make these changes happen in your own organization!

Time to read the award-winning business handbook Six Disciplines for Excellence, by veteran CEO and strategy execution expert, Gary Harpst.
