Most companies rarely meet their strategic goals, especially not within the desired timelines. What if we told you many market leaders use a proven method to set goals and get the results, would you look into it?
OKR is all about the best practice of setting and communicating company, team and individual goals and measuring progress based on actual results. Objectives are ambitious, qualitative, time bound and actionable. The key results should be measurable and quantifiable, make the objective achievable, lead to objective grading and be challenging but not impossible).
What would the impact be if your organisation was fully aligned and really pushed to succeed? As most, probably a lot better off!
We'll kickoff by explaining the objectives and key results of this exercise. The participants should reflect management of the organisation or the unit in scope.
Many organisations already have strategies, plans and budgets. We'll collect, study and learn about the baseline to prepare for the first workshop.
The first workshop will introduce OKR and then jump straight into defining Objectives and Key Results through active contributions.
Scope includes one organisation, unit or team and 3 objectives with 3 key results each.
This step is all about validating the outcome of the workshop.
For example, aligning with other units or functions and setting realistic timelines.
When completed the first set of OKR's it's time to agree on grading and score the first set of Key results. We'll also set the how often OKR's are reviewed and how to do it.
Additionally, if time permits, we'll list key activities that leads to achieving the key results.
Now it's time to make the OKR's visual and available to the organisation. One essential part is to show the OKR's and let your co-workers participate in the completion of them.
One key advantage of OKR's is that they can be distributed to your co-workers. We'll help you facilitate this by sharing our train-the-trainer for setting individual OKR's.
Reviewing OKR's should be done on a regular basis. We'll make sure you get off to a great start.
