The OKR Institute partnered with Betika, a dynamic player in the gaming industry, to implement OKRs across its management and middle management teams. The initiative aimed to establish a robust OKR framework to enhance strategic clarity, execution, and alignment throughout the organization.

A key challenge for Betika was the organization-wide rollout of OKRs, requiring not only the introduction of a new goal-setting framework but also ensuring its adoption and effective use across different levels of the company.

To address these challenges, the OKR Institute devised a comprehensive strategy:

  • Comprehensive OKR Training: Conducted detailed training sessions for all organizational levels, focusing on the principles of OKRs, best practices for drafting and aligning OKRs, and establishing a routine for weekly check-ins.
  • Selecting Pilot Groups: Identified and selected specific teams within Betika to serve as pilot groups for the initial OKR rollout, allowing for focused implementation and the opportunity to adjust strategies based on early feedback.
  • Establishing OKR Discipline: Emphasized the importance of regular, weekly check-ins as a critical component of the OKR cycle, ensuring ongoing alignment, accountability, and adaptation of OKRs.

The OKR training and implementation strategy led to several significant achievements across Betika:

  • Enhanced OKR Drafting: Product managers, team leads, and C-level executives learned to effectively draft OKRs aligned with both board-level strategic objectives and team-level operational goals.
  • Strategic OKR Alignment: Achieved a higher level of strategic alignment within and across teams, ensuring that everyone’s efforts were contributing towards common company goals.
  • Effective OKR Rhythm: Established a sustainable rhythm for OKR implementation through regular, weekly check-ins, facilitating continuous dialogue, feedback, and adjustments to OKRs.
  • Successful OKR Rollout: The careful selection of pilot groups and emphasis on OKR discipline paved the way for a sustainable and successful organization-wide rollout of OKRs.
