Commitment Management

Once you have a meeting structure in place, you have a powerful structure into which you can drop coaching. Think of each of these steps – Accountability, Metrics, Weekly Meeting – as management tools. Commitment Management being one of the more powerful.

Commitment Management, or Promise Based Management is a way of taking responsibility before the fact, rather than finding out what happened at the end of the week or month. By then, it’s too late to change anything.

I have been preaching and teaching Commitment Management for years. I think it’s something every business owner needs to employ to make running the business easier. But hey, don’t listen to just me. Check out what Harvard Business Review has to say about it!
