There is plenty of free literature, YouTube videos and best practice about OKRs available.
So what makes a difference?
Well, it´s not just about the basics.
Your individual organization, your meeting culture, your people, your current management style, your performance and bonus system, your tools will be taken into account with this individual implementation process. We will be your personal coach and sparring partner until you feel save and confident to run OKRs on your own and have all your individual questions answered. A blended learning approach with online courses and onsite or live-video training will ensure a smooth implementation and is scalable to all organisational sizes. Good to know - we are practitioners and don't scale our business with juniors.
Teams and organisations of any size who have decided for OKRs and need an expert to get it right and done. See our blog post video on top-level tips to start with OKRs.
On- and offline process steps
Here´s a rough description of the process steps in a nutshell (the flow is a bit adjusted for remote projects). OKRs do not require a huge team of consultants like many other change projects. It´s a mindset change. The buy-in and discipline of your management team will make the difference. Your teams will be trained in the most effective way through individual online trainings. The full process is proven with thousands of employees and minimizes the risks of changing leadership and implementing OKRs.
We do have lot's of experience with 100% remote OKR implementations. In these cases the role of your internal OKR Champion is becoming even more important. Like in any project, we customise our approach very much to your needs and individual circumstances.
SETTING UP DEPLOYMENT PARAMETERS - starting point is a workshop with the leadership team to define individual needs and rules. Further we make sure that the connection towards vision and strategy is solid enough and will do some polishing if needed.
