The Rockefeller Habits checklist is a set of best practices for managing and growing a business, developed by management consultant Verne Harnish. The checklist consists of the following items:

  1. One-page strategic plan: This is a concise, high-level plan that outlines the key goals, strategies, and tactics for the business. It helps to ensure that everyone in the organization is working towards the same goals and is aligned on the direction of the business.

  2. Scorecard: This is a tool for tracking key performance indicators (KPIs) that are relevant to the business. It helps to ensure that the business is on track to achieve its goals and can identify areas for improvement.

  3. Executive team alignment: This is a process for ensuring that the executive team is aligned on the business's goals, strategies, and tactics. It helps to ensure that everyone is working towards the same objectives and can make decisions quickly and effectively.

  4. Meetings: This refers to the importance of regularly scheduled meetings to review progress, make decisions, and communicate with the team.

  5. Data: This refers to the importance of collecting and analyzing data to inform decision-making and identify areas for improvement.

  6. Rhythm: This refers to the importance of establishing a regular cadence of meetings and activities to keep the business on track and moving forward.

  7. Priorities: This refers to the importance of focusing on a few key priorities at any given time, rather than trying to do too many things at once.

  8. Issues: This refers to the importance of identifying and addressing any issues or challenges that may arise, in order to keep the business moving forward.

Overall, the items in the Rockefeller Habits checklist are designed to help businesses stay focused, aligned, and efficient, and to continuously improve and grow.
